Obiko fashion show history

For seventeen years it was my extraordinary fortune to work on the production of the Obiko fashion shows for Sandra Sakata in various roles from providing only sound design to complete production coordination. I was also involved with satellite shows that featured Obiko designers. Some of these shows were video taped and I will write about them and post the videos at some point.
