Kohshin Satoh Designer

Upon establishing arrston volaju co., ltd. in 1975.
Kohshin Satoh immediately attracted attention with his freshly bohemian touch and disdain for preconceptions then prevalent in the fashion scene.

His first participation in the Tokyo Collection in 1983, precipitated a men's designer brand boom that developed into a social phenomenon and affected both the fashion industry and youth trends.

Kohshin Satoh is held in high regard internationally as a leading men's fashion designer whose clothes have been favored by many superstars, including the jazz artist Miles Davis and renowned pop-art icon Andy Warhol.

In 1986〜'87 his participation in two major New York and Paris collecions affirmed his position as a global trendsetter both in name and reality. His talents also include interior, product and graphic design.
