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 source from Osaka and other regions of Japan.

Fashion wear centric.


We specialize strictly in the wearable fashion and apparel segment. We wear it, we own it, we want everyone to know it. We are entering a new world fashion era, and it is why we created aoiShip.

We love Street Wear and High Fashion.


From the streets of Osaka to the affluence of Aoyoma, we provide and seek only the unique designers who display impeccable craftsmanship and passion 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:

“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

Meet The Movers and Shakers.

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.
