Sakaguchi Label Closing Down


For immediate release

Sakaguchi Label Closing Down

As you know, I have been in business for 17 years, both with manufacturing and owning a shop in Merivale, in Christchurch, which was forced to close after the February earthquake.

After much soul searching, I have decided to close Sakaguchi Ltd.

This decision has not been made lightly. Times are very tough for independent labels, and I am sad to say this wonderful adventure has reached a point where I feel I must take a break and I need distance to think how to develop my brand for the future.

I would like to take some time and focus more on artistic and creative designs rather than the commercial main stream and look back to my Japanese heritage and the classic designs from the 80’s as to those of Comme des Garcon’s, Issey Miyake and Yohji Yamamoto.

I would like open again a small Boutique in the future focusing on more creative and clever designs and import a few European brands from Belgium and Germany.

I am currently developing a new label called Ginger under a local Christchurch based Fashion House that will be ready in time for winter!
