Japanese model Yuka Mannami would like to be her own boss. A relative newcomer, the 25-year-old was first spotted by scouts via her Instagram account and made her runway debut at Fendi’s Tokyo haute couture show in August of 2015. Since then, she’s graced the pages of Interview and Vogue Japan, and been the subject of many a hair-trend piece. Expect much more to come.
