Fashion Film Friday: Yokoo

Yokoo makes scarves, lots of scarves. Over one thousand to be approximate. And it is a rather special endeavor that she has handmade them all herself. I am lucky to know her, even if it is only through virtual reality. On occasion we go back and forth giving words of encouragement to one another and it does really keep me going. Her work ethic is impeccable but if you asked her it is just who she is, no special formula to calculate.

She was documented on Etsy earlier this week and in my opinion it was a long time coming. Possibly her shyness got in the way? The video itself really captures Yokoo's work ethic, background, and environment of creativity. Anything more and I will spoil the video for you. As always give feedback below....
