Hanako was born in Tokyo but raised in New York City. She gained experience by doing several fashion internships. She launched her own label ADEAM with a capsule collection of 15 pieces. She presented her following collection during Shanghai Fashion Week, Tokyo Fashion week and New York Fashion week.
ADEAM takes its inspiration in Tokyo and New York to create collections that infuse art and wearability, tradition and inspiration. The designer is using Japanese art and craft techniques. She transmit the Zen notion of "fusoku no bi": beauty in imperfection; that results in cool looks with a pale pink as a guideline.
