Born in Tokyo and raised in Cairo, Nagi Sakai's eclectic
background lent him the opportunity to experience art in

while assisting him for such clients as Issey Miyake,
Yohji Yamamoto, Comme des Garcons, to name a few.
Although completing his academic degree in Commerce,
Nagi's strict ambition brought him to New York in 2000
after signing on with his first agency representation.

Emerging strongly on the scene, Nagi Sakai's talents
have already been celebrated by such clients as Vogue Ukraine,

Gathering inspiration from the diversity of the arts, and
fueled by his passion to express strength in beauty and
sophisticated realism, Nagi Sakai's profession has
rapidly become his career.
