The vision was to create a Couture / Ready to Wear Collection that reflects our times as well as honor our past combining old world craftsmanship with a post modern Road Warrior's Spirit!
This is the introduction of Yuki's ever evolving women's and men’s collection which includes lounge, active wear and urban clothes geared toward those who love to look great while living life to the fullest! The style evokes a futurist, urban soulfulness, with a Road Warrior aesthetic. The pieces are versatile enough to take you from a walk through the city to a lunch meeting, from working out to just hanging out.
CHATEAU DE LION is about freedom of movement with durable functionality for the changing demands of Global Warming and the challenges of urban living. Yuki is dedicated to bringing together the flare of Couture with the demands of everyday life to create a new lifestyle brand for the Road Warrior in everyone!
Artist/ Fashion Designer Yuki Tanaka has studied Fashion Design at Parson's School of Design in New York and has worked professionally as a Fashion Designer & as a Fashion Stylist for music videos aired on MTV, commercials & private clients in Miami, New York, & San Francisco. Yuki was a couturier/stylist on the John Legend Evolver Tour.
Yuki's work has also been exhibited in Miami's Wynwood Art District & various gallery shows in New York including The National Arts Club and Collective Hardware.
Yuki believes in keeping up the tradition and quality in garment construction only found in couture and creates & designs each prototype by hand from sketch to finish and takes great care in sourcing quality fabrics and materials from around the world. Most of the leather and furs used are vegan synthetic fibers of the highest quality that gives you the warmth, look, and weather durability found in fur & leather while being more sustainable! Any Leather that is real is reclaimed and re-purposed from being left to abandonment.
Also, most of the styles are available in both women's and men's sizes so that everyone can wear what they wish!
Everything is tailor-made to order with LOVE!
