YKK France

ESMOD fashion show, hôtel Evreux, place Vendôme


In 1967, Mr Tadao Yoshida’s desire to have a presence in each local market was realised in France with the creation of YKK France. Our Japanese prerequisite for high quality product, based on our management principle “cycle of goodness”, began to serve French creativity.

Now in 2017, strengthened by its core values of quality and respect, YKK France is celebrating these fifty years by recommitting itself to being creative and accepting responsibility to go beyond social and environmental norms. Even now, new projects are in the pipeline to support your future success.

YKK France organised an exceptional night based on creativity and technique. YKK and its long-standing partner, the fashion school ESMOD, presented a wonderful fashion show.

Workshop at Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp

In collaboration with YKK France, the students of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp, had the opportunity to meet the designer Kei Kagami, who showed his collection and the possibilities of creation with zippers.

As a result of this demonstration, the students had the task to create objects with zippers. These creations have been exhibited in our London showroom.
