Born in 2001, Mappy is a young fashionista and an aspiring jazz pianist, all the while being a regular junior high school student. She’s gained much popularity through her Instagram account (which she has maintained since her elementary school days), which features her everyday outfits and snapshots of things that inspire her, highlighting her unique sense of style and aesthetics.
Since then she has been a hot topic in the fashion world and is continually invited to the front row of many fashion shows in Japan. She even has her own irregular column in the prominent Japan fashion magazine, “GINZA,” since 1997.
Her sharp sense of fashion has also caught the attention of the overseas fashion industry, having collaborated with Teen Vogue and MiLK Magazine in China, where she had a full 16-page feature that she both modeled in and art-directed.
