Shakuhachi evolved from fashion designer, Jessie White?s strong desire to create product that was instinctive and a reflection of her innate sense of style. Having eschewed formal fashion training, Jessie White?s career as a designer was born out of her instinct, necessity, and a strong desire to create. White has ensured that the Shakuhachi label is consistently inspiring to loyal followers and newcomers alike.
Shakuhachi made a solo runway debut at Rosemount Australian Fashion Week. The spring/summer 2007/08 collection titled ?My Life In Pink?, presented a fresh and youthful collection of sporty, utilitarian shapes that was impressively mature and highly polished. Recent Shakuhachi collections have seen the label mature, its primary focus being beautifully refined silk dresses, leather goods, clever detailing, tailoring, distinctive prints and accessories.
Silhouettes are both functional and feminine, and the recognizable but evolutionary aesthetic of Shakuhachi is now stronger then ever.
Creating original artwork, Shakuhachi brings together a sophisticated blend of modern, somewhat geometrical designs - a distinctive style developed through creative experimentation and natural curiosity.
Shakuhachi is available internationally throughout Asia, New Zealand, the UK and the USA and is stocked in a range of exclusive boutiques and department stores within Australia.
