Founded in 2005, MARK STYLER plans, manufactures and sells products under the company’s original brands which specialize in ladies' apparel. Making use of three company strengths (brand development, resources for spreading information as well as expanding stores), MARK STYLER operates a wide range of brands (17 brands including MERCURYDUO, EMODA, dazzlin, MURUA, Ungrid and LAGUNAMOON) targeting women with a high sense of fashion, with 192 stores in Japan (158 directly operated, 34 franchises) mainly in major fashion buildings. The company is also actively expanding its e-commerce business with its online store “RUNWAY Channel” receiving high appraisal from many customers.
We believe that the power to create new things and the spirit of taking on challenges are important. In other words, I think that as a company, we must always remember to stay young at heart.
Q. Do you have any memories from working with LUMINE that you would like to share?
When our business started struggling and sales plummeted from the 2013 A/W season, LUMINE believed in the revival of our company and provided us with advice from time to time, for which we have been touched greatly and appreciate to this day.
We currently work with LUMINE through 12 of our brands with around 30 stores.
Q. Do you have any messages to your overseas customers/companies?
We are currently focused on growing our recently launched brands (ELENDEEK, UN3D., COTORICA.) as well as restructuring China business operations to increase stores and expand e-commerce business.
I believe that fashion is a universal culture that enriches people’s souls. I hope to share our brands that are thought through and unique, to people around the world who enjoy fashion.
