YUKI is one of Japan's most notable female vocalists. Best known as the front-woman and lead vocals of the former rock band Judy and Mary, she has also been part of the largely unknown NiNa (with Kate Pierson of The B-52's) and the all girl rock band Mean Machine (along side Chara).
As well as being a strong vocalist with prominent and varied longevity in Japan's music business (including hosting her own radio program), and appearing regularly in various commercials and ads (for cosmetic products as well as a recent campaign for Sony Ericsson cellphones) YUKI is also a very avid fan of fashion. She often models her unique and popularly mimicked wardrobe for magazines such as CUTiE, Non-no, and Zipper. She is also the primary model for the Japanese photography group known as SLEEP, whom she has collaborated with to create merchandise, including the limited edition White Line Backpack.
