At JapanTKY, we are not only inspired by the latest fashion trends and city trips. We also take inspiration from the people who wear our clothes. Ultimately, we design our clothes for them. Therefore, we would like you to meet some of our muses.
Michèle Kuball(48), personal assistant / shop owner from Düsseldorf, Germany

Since 18 years however, she has worked as a personal assistant to her husband, renowned international artist Mischa Kuball. He creates light- and video-based installations in response to specific locations. You can take a look at his website to see and read more about his work. Michèle arranges and organizes just about everything that comes with his work.
Moreover, Michèle is the owner of TANTE LORETTA, a children’s clothing brand with self-designed and self-made baby’s and children’s clothing made out of antique linen and cotton fabrics.
"I started TANTE LORETTA in 2012. It is my 3rd child, so to speak. With TANTE LORETTA two things come together for me: my 'old profession' (after high school I started with a sewing & tailoring education) and my desire to have a daughter. That is why I mainly design girls' clothing. TANTE LORETTA is more of a hobby than work, but I enjoy doing this: from the search for special antique fabrics with a story to the design and sewing of the clothes."
