Acqua Models' Noemie, a French half-Japanese model, appeared in the Ichi Antiques edition of the Kinfolk Book in Book Magazine. 

The photography and styling were done by the Cameraman Naoto Hayasaka and the Stylist Masahiro Hiramatsu, both of whom are currently managed by Wilhelmina Japan. 

By coincidence, just as we were thinking to write up this article and picked up the magazine, we realized the cameraman, Naoto Hayasaka,  who did the photography for this shoot was stopping by our office and talking on the phone with some clients in France.

Several models from Acqua Models took part in the Wanna Meshi Concept Movie. The theme was my first temaku sushi party.
Temaki sushi is hand rolled sushi so everyone had a great time learning about Japanese culture and enjoying the delicious food. The shooting took place at a beautiful traditional Japanese home and they enjoyed the food outside on the deck facing a Japanese garden.
“Washoku” traditional Japanese cuisine was added to UNESCO’s Intangible Cultural Heritage list. This will help to promote Japanese tourism and exports of agricultural products and also get people excited about coming to Japan for the Tokyo Olympics in 2020. This video by Delicious Communication Media provides a window on the fascinating food culture of Japan.

Acqua Models' Dean and Wilhelmina Japan's Julianne took part in the 2015 Spring and Summer golf wear image shooting for the English golf brand Admiral. The Admiral Golf 2015 Spring Summer collection draws on traditional design while incorporating sporty and casual elements. We are particularly proud of Dean's participation in this shooting as he took time out from his busy schedule at the time, running in a marathon to support people in the Tohoku region. Nice work Dean!
