profile Kazumi Saeki spends many months and expends a great deal of energy to create one piece of work. Even if it takes her a whole month to complete one side of the front of a garment, if she is not satisfied with it she doesn't hesitate to start again. Producing a piece of work is a battle for her. She is a quiet person and spoke little about her creations, yet I came to find her explanations very useful in helping me to understand her work. 

Her work is currently moving in new directions.
