Fashion e-Commerce, from Japan to the world

We are a Tokyo-based company dedicated to sourcing and originating undiscovered fashion wear and apparel from Japan.

We started our company to create the first online e-Commerce to source and export fashionwear directly from Japanese designers to overseas. We are now on our way to building this mission into reality.

We are observing a major shift happening in the world of fashion as eyes turn towards beautiful Japanese Design and the undeniable influence of Tokyo Streetwear. We believe it is only the beginning. The future of fashion is Japan.

We are here to accelerate that.

Come aboard our ship and join the movement.

Japan Sourced.


Our fashion selection is originated from top designers in Japan. We source fashion from local shops to large, popular brands from specific areas of Tokyo such as Aoyoma, Daikanyama, Harajuku, Omotesando, and Shibuya. We also supply Osaka-based streetwear.

Streetwear centric.


We pride ourselves in having a "Streetwear first" mentality. We wear it, we own it, we want everyone to know it. We are entering a new fashion era for Japan, and it is why we created aoiShip.

A Taste for High-Fashion.


Tokyo is not without its exquisite taste for High Fashion. We provide only the unique designers who display the essence of "Luxury à la Mode" through their apparel.

Who We Are Looking For:

Designers, designers, and more designers.


Why?


    Because fashion is fatigued from European designs of oversized emblazoned logos, and the runways being dominated by brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci, and Versace.

    Because customers and influencers are craving something uniquely different. For example: Japanese Fashion.

    Because we want to find like-minded partners interested in disrupting the antiquated fashion industry in Japan and breaking down invisible walls of old systems and process.

We offer a global, digital stage to the person we need the most:

The innovative fashion designer.


Let's show the world what you're made of. Let us grow with you in your artistic journey.

Show Us Your Influence.

And also meet a few of our influencers:

Show Us Your Kicks

Do you call yourself a fashion designer, but apparel is just not your thing? Do you see life in rose-colored glasses, and want everyone else to see the same in chic Harajuku-style shades? If this is you, we'll help you realize your vision.

“There is no end and no goal. As long as I'm attempting to make something that never existed before, an end is out of the question.” —Rei Kawakubo, Comme des Garçons

NY-2-LA meets TOKYO : A Story For Legend


In the Summer of 2018, the lives of a NY-2-LA Asian American and a Tokyo-native who grew up in Ehime, Japan, would come colliding by fate. What began as a simple conversation between two strangers supporting the burgeoning Startup Movement in Tokyo emerged a brotherhood formed on infinite trust while realizing they shared a common anthem:

The expression of DOPE FASHION and Cultural Disruption via apparel.

The pair marveled at the endless scores of undiscovered designer talents hidden around Japan in Tokyo districts like Aoyoma, Daikanyama, Harajuku, and Shibuya, as well as the Amerika-mura area of Osaka. After observing many pain points, Adam came up with the idea of developing a digital solution to make Japanese fashion more accessible, seeking to disrupt the antiquated ways of the fashion industry and old-style system in Japan. Together, Adam and Kazu recognized they had the power to provide a global platform for the fashion gems of Japan that are still waiting to be discovered.

For these two founders, time can no longer be wasted, and the world can no longer wait. It's time to open Japan's doors, giving rise to aoiShip.
