Isetan is a leading luxury department store in Japan and East Asia part of the Isetan Mitsukoshi Holdings Ltd. group.

Isetan hosted its first event in collaboration with the Ethical Fashion Initiative featuring a bag collection designed by Italian brand, Marni and produced by Kenyan artisans. The event promoted responsible fashion, raising awareness among Japanese consumers and celebrating the work of artisans. Today, Isetan and the Initiative are partners with a long-term plan to organise promotional activities in Isetan’s flagship store, featuring various fashion partners of the Initiative, thus making responsible fashion available in Japan.
