A party of mini apprentices arrived at our Aoyama store this weekend for a special event to celebrate Children’s Day in Japan.


Led by our honorary host for the day, Joe Nakayama Miyasaka, our little guests spent the afternoon as Anya’s junior bespoke apprentices, customising Carker handbag drawings and creating their very own bespoke bookmarks, embossed with handwritten messages and drawings.


As well as traditional Japanese sweets, children enjoyed cookies decorated with Joe’s own drawings and left with a ‘Junior Apprentice’ certificate and badge.
