eigoMANGA has launched a new line of anime inspired clothing. Fashion designer Kayo Mitsuyama has agreed to be the exclusive licenser of clothing for eigoMANGA.
Mitsuyama said, "I had always dreamed to wake up as a foxy strong anime heroine in a great costume. I see many intersections between fashion and anime. It presents reality and non-reality. What I would like to present in my fashion is a bridge between those two worlds. A lot of people wish to be a different person or character each day and what you wear can make it happen without changing your own personality."
Mitsuyama's designs are featured in eigoMANGAs year round live event productions, including the recent anime concert produced on the campus of San Francisco State University. The clothing will be promoted in future issues of the eigoMANGA anthology series, RUMBLE PAK, featuring a tie-in comic strip series based on Mitsuyama's designs. The new edition will ship in February 2004. eigoMANGA plans to distribute the clothing to major clothing stores as well as comic book retailers.
