Yuki was Gnyuki Torimaru's label. Born in Japan, he studied architecture before working as a textile engineer. He moved to England in the 1960s and studied at the London College of Fashion from which he graduated in 1966. He worked first with Louis Feraud, then with Norman Hartnell and Pierre Cardin.
He launched his own collection in 1972 and made a name for himself in jersey draped dresses inspired by monastic styles. His brand cut was panels cut in a full circle and then draped, giving maximum fullness without seams.
"He created clothes for Princess Diana's visit to Japan in 1986 and began using a new pleated fabric and technique, which inspired even more fantastic and luxurious clothing. He still draws in London, under the name Gnyuki Torimaru.
