Monthly Maker Spotlight: Sherry Koyama of Harumi K
Sherry Koyama is the designer of the Oakland-based womenswear line Harumi K. All Harumi K designs are very versatile and transition easily from work to play.
The Harumi K line is designed for the modern woman that wants to look great, be comfortable, and has a million things to do in a day. Sherry's goal is to make women feel confident and comfortable when wearing her flattering, sleek designs. Each of her pieces melds seamlessly into an existing wardrobe. Sherry personally test drives each style herself before producing it. Harumi K is designed in Sherry's home studio near Resurrect and manufactured in the San Francisco Bay Area to help support the local economy as much as possible.
Sherry is a graduate of the pattern-making program at Apparel Arts and has degrees in Art and Psychology from UC Davis. She is also the Co-Founder of the Oakland Fashion Network, a networking group for fashion designers and industry professionals. Check out the Oakland Fashion Network website to learn more! The Oakland Fashion Network will be having a fashion show and holiday shopping event at Apparel Arts, in downtown Oakland this Friday Dec. 4th from 6-9pm.
