Yuko Yamaguchi, Hello Kitty and Tegan Martin visit Bondi to launch the collection
Posted on November 02 2015
IT MADE for quite a sight when Hello Kitty took a stroll along Bondi Beach this week with Miss Universe Australia 2014, Tegan Martin. As she took in the sights of Sydney’s most famous beach, visiting tour groups wasted no time whipping their phones out to capture the unique attraction.
The visit was to launch our Bondi Bather x Hello Kitty swimwear collection, modelled by Tegan, “I’ve always loved Hello Kitty, I love the attention she creates, particularly in Japan. I think it’s hilarious, she’s super cute.”
Joining us for morning tea at Bucket List was head designer for the billion dollar Hello Kitty brand Yuko Yamaguchi, who has been with the company for 35 years.
Ms Yamaguchi said she considered the best part of the character was “that she can be anything that she wants to be”, saying, “I come up with the designs when I talk to her.”
