JAPANESE SUPERSTAR KEMIO
MAKES HIS MARK ON AMERICAN FASHION
Thank you CFDA for the article on our VF$N host, Kemio!
While Kemio might look like your average high-fashion New Yorker, you might be surprised to know he has already managed to achieve superstar status in his native country Japan. He first achieved social media stardom on Vine while in high school, but fast forward and today, the social media phenom commands an audience of millions across all platforms.
The digital talent has now his eyes set on the U.S., where he has lived since 2016. Since moving, he has gained a fast following and collaborated with a number of high-profile brands, sitting front-row on the runway at Marc Jacobs and Dior, for example. He even virtually attended our CFDA Awards red carpet last year.
Kemio is now embarking on his biggest project yet – taking on a role as the host of the new VFILES Shopping Network show, where he will showcase up-and-coming talent across creative fields of art, music, and fashion.
