My fashion style varies a lot depending on the season and mood. Lately I’ve really been into the dark feminine look. I’m also a very active person and love to stay fit, so athleisure is another one of my go to looks. During colder seasons, however, I like to be versatile. I love to play with different layers and usually opt for streetwear sort of clothing; an effortless yet edgy style.
As for shopping, it depends on the clothing. For quick and easy summer clothes, I usually like to shop online from boutiques or stores like the kript, ohpolly or revolve. I do like to shop in stores a lot when I’m back in Tokyo, particularly places like moussy, shelter or beams. For more winter based clothes, I like to shop at APC, acne studios or NAKD (an online shop).
If you could learn anything in this world, what will it be?
I want to learn more about the impacts of AI and how, if it is even possible, it will replace programmers and humans in the foreseeable future. I’m very intrigued by such topics as it’s still a new phenomenon and is rapidly changing the way we do things online.
What favorite pastimes do you have?
I love to stay active regularly by exercising, going for a class like pilates and spin, and lately a lot of golfing. I also love to just sit in a cafe and drink good filters or oat lattes, whilst reading a good book. On the weekends, well, you know what happens on those nights!
On a scale of 1-10, how much of a foodie are you?
20/10! I’m a very adventurous person when it comes to food. I think my family has always placed a big emphasis on food since young, and I am very grateful to have traveled the world to experience an array of cuisines. I can and will eat anything, literally.
Would you rather have the ability to fly or talk to animals?
The ability to fly. Since I’m an avid traveller, i think it’d make my life a lot easier and less physically exhausting!
Do you believe in any superstition?
I believe in good and bad karma. Do good things and it will reciprocate back to you. Do bad things and vice versa.
What turns you off on a date?
A man with no ambition (or a lack thereof), and when he’s using you. A girl knows when she’s being taken advantage of!
Thank you for taking the time to answer our questions Ayako. One question before we end, how do you define “sexy”?
Sexy to me is just being confident in your own skin and embracing every inch of what you got. As cliche as it sounds, but really if you constantly tell yourself “I’m sexy”, your subconscious mind programs you to feel that way. As Buddha once said “what you think, you become”.
