Yu Konishi and Kyoko Tasaka began their training at Esmod Japan in Osaka in 1995. From there, Konishi's career led to fashion design, with leading design roles in Japanese fashion houses World KK, Sanyo Shokai for Paul Stuart and Burberry Blue Label. Tasaka pursued a more technical path, with the position of pattern makers and technical designer at World KK (Tokyo HQ). The two formed a collaborative partnership as designers supporting the Heart Attack Tokyo collection in Tokyo in 2002.
