Fumio Tanuma / Designer
Born in Japan, Fumio Tanuma studied fashion design in Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo. After a stint as a fashion designer at several fashion houses there, he moved his studio to the United States to proceed to show his own line of style.
KALF, his only boutique, was first opened its door in 1989 in San Francisco’s Fillmore area. Since then, he continues to create very sophisticated, elegant clothing using carefully chosen fine fabrics. Chic…stylish…understated sleekness…classic-yet-modern…everyday elegance…..they are the words for his line and you can instantly feel them when you step into our shop.
Please come to visit KALF and experience his art of wearing, the art of life.
