RE;CODE strives to give fast fashion a twist and promotes sustainable fashion. The brand takes the garments that are not chosen by customer as its materials for stylish collections of upcycled clothes. RE;nano, a sub brand, practices zero-waste production to further reduce the footprint of manufacturing.
In addition to fashion, RE;CODE also promotes sustainability on different fronts. For instance, it provides an opportunity for talented people with intellectual disability, single mothers, North Korean refugees to work and learn and helps their self-reliance.

6D | Tokyo Shogo KISHINO | Founder(Video sharing)
Shogo KISHINO is a renowned designer in Japan. He is Associate Professor at the School of Design of Tokyo University of Science, and heads graphic design and art studio 6D, which he founded in 2007. 6D specialises on a range of design areas, such as visual identity, packaging, branding and architecture information design, which is called "sign project" in Japanese.
6D frequently takes part in large-scale projects. Recent trademark projects include Line of Life Project, a CSR activity of Suntory, in which the tradition of kite-flying was incorporated in a campaign for bird preservation.
To Shogo KISHINO, design is not the solution to everything. Nevertheless, while more and more is related to design today, designers cannot only focus on design anymore. "We have to become designers who understand all sorts of problems."
