Kiko Mizuhara is one of the most famous women in Japan. After launching her career as a model in Tokyo, brands such as Marc Jacobs and Coach came calling, and earlier this year, Dior Beauty named Mizuhara as its first-ever Asian ambassador. But Mizuhara’s ambitions have stretched well beyond campaigns. In 2014, she partnered with Opening Ceremony to create a playful and extremely popular capsule collection, which culminated in her own namesake label, Office Kiko. Here, a profile of the 27-year-old superstar, through numbers.
