Flores Astorum is a new Japanese street fashion select shop aiming to introduce products from Japanese small business owners and Japanese indie brands to the international market. Their online shop featuring Japanese fashion brands will launch on April 1, 2021.
About Flores Astorum
Based in Tokyo, Japan, the shop’s name means “flowers of the stars” in Latin. When they noticed that a Japanese indie brands did not have a large presence on the global stage, the owner of Sunflower Seed Company decided to open Flores Astorum. Their goal is to bridge the distance between Japanese indie designers and the rest of the world. The idea behind the name is that each artist is a shining star in the endless galaxy, and their creations are beautiful flowers.
Owner Sunflower stated she “like supporting small businesses and connecting people who love unique work together with the artists and designers who make them!”
We know that there are so many indie designers and small businesses that unfortunately go unnoticed, and we would love to use our international platform to bring more attention to all of the beautiful work that’s out there that deserve more love. Each partnership is built upon trust and with everyone’s best interest in mind, and may lead to exclusive pieces, custom orders, etc!-Sunflower
