Kaye finds joy in making crafts and sewing cute dresses and skirts, whether for herself, her sister, or her customers at Dolly Kaye.

She takes most of her fashion inspiration from sweet girly fashion picture book, Larme Magazine .

Naomi likes all things kawaii and finds delight in playing video games, graphic designing, layout editing, and creating things out of her imagination. She’s also the person behind the Milk Club Shop. Did I mention her hair? Who wouldn’t love that hair color?
