Behind everything Sachi Wakashiro designs, her aim is to create beautiful lingerie.
Wacoal’s Lingerie Director Sachi Wakashiro has over twenty years industry experience and has worked internationally for Wacoal in Japan, China and Europe. Influenced by her grandfather, a skilled craftsman of Japanese embroidery who taught her the beauty of embroidery, Sachi developed an eye for detail and a sharp sense of style. Sachi studied at the Osaka Bunka Fashion College and joined Wacoal Japan in 1990 as a bra pattern maker then becoming a designer. In 2005 Sachi was appointed as Chief Designer and was responsible for developing the top-selling Wacoal styles the French hook and Marshmallow bra. Sachi then joined Wacoal China and in 2013 and became Design General Manager with a team of 15 designers. Quality, beauty and innovation have always been key factors when Sachi is creating new Wacoal designs, believing that Japanese harmony of colour and European art have also helped to inspire and influence her creativity. These factors have been key in Sachi’s creation of Wacoals’ lingerie and shapewear collections, providing women with pieces that make them look and feel even more beautiful.
