My name is Masanori Takata, you can call me "MASA". I was born in Hiroshima, Japan, on January 9, 1980. In former job, for 5 years I had worked as a director, forecasting and analyzing trend color in Japanese industry, such as men's & women's wear, mobile phone, car, Kimono (Japanese traditional clothes), make-up, and as an instructor of teaching color theory to designers. In September 2012, I moved to NY, USA, and now I have been majoring in fashion design in Parsons since January, 2013. Thank you!
