Born in Onomichi city, Hiroshima prefecture, Kunie’s natural playground was the beautiful Setonai sea in which she enjoyed swimming and playing with her grandfather who frequently took her to undiscovered spots.
After coming to Tokyo and initially working for an architectural design company Kunie become interested in the “arts” in particular as a freelance stylist, and it is this experience in the fashion industry which prompted her to begin the world famous event known as Design Festa!
After 15years of running this amazingly popular event Kunie Usuki recently decided to move on to a new challenge, this being her love of the traditional Japanese tea ceremony of which she has presided over many times at the Design Festa Gallery, and which after seeing the possibilities for cultural exchange between Japanese and overseas visitors inspired her to begin a new style of ceremony, join her and enjoy Tenseki!!!
