CREATIVE DIRECTOR / TECHNICAL DIRECTOR
With a mixed ethnic background of east meets west, Kawada’s experience and appreciation for the diversity of culture, colour and beauty in the world gives him endless inspiration that he devotes to his craft. Drawing from the wisdom of Picasso, Kawada’s personal mantra in his work is to “Learn the rules like a pro, so you can break them like an artist”.

Always striving for continuous learning and growing his expertise, Kawada attended the Vidal Sassoon Academy and has developed skills in as an educator himself.
His sense of adventure and challenge has taken him from France to pursue an inspired creative path in Australia.
