Born in Japan, Yuco was certified as a kimono master before launching her hair & makeup career.

 

 

While in Tokyo and New York City, she cultivated her sense and technique through involvement in many high-fashion editorial and advertising projects in publications such as VOGUE, Harper’s BAZAAR, W, ELLE, and others.  She was especially inspired by assisting make-up teams on projects for top photographers such as Bruce Weber and Steven Klein. 

 

 

Over 5 years in New York, her primary areas of focus have been editorial, advertising, fashion catalogues, and runway shows.  As a side interest, she has continued to be involved in various kimono shows.

 

 

Yuco’s style is creative, refined, and sophisticated, and her passion is to emphasize a model’s unique character as it best fits the vision of a photographic project.

 

She has worked under Francois Nars and Diane Kendal on runway shows in New York and Paris. 

 

She is currently based in Chicago.
