In 1972, Mihara Yasuhiro was born in Nagasaki, Japan. He studied at Tama Art University where he first started experimenting with shoe design.
Designing for the daily use of shoes drew his interests more than art to be admired, and he developed his skills working at a shoe factory.
While attending University, he created his first pair of shoes and discovered the unique design that would be used in many creations when he started his own label, MIHARAYASUHIRO, in 1996.
MIHARAYASUHIRO has a strong global reputation due to the brand's uniqueness and highly detailed designs, which can been seen not only in shoes but also in his ready-to-wear collections.
Mihara first took part in Milano Collection in 2006 and has participated in Paris Collection since 2007.
The SS09 collection was chosen by Mensstyle.com as one of the Top 10 greatest Men’s designer collections shown in Paris.
In 2015, Mihara became a creative director of Sanyo Shokai’s new brand, Blue Label Crest Bridge and Black Label Crest Bridge. MIHARAYASUHIRO changed its name to Maison MIHARA YASUHRO and made its first appearance in the autumn/winter 2016-17 runway show in Paris. The Tokyo flagship store re-opened at Omotesando hills in Tokyo in March 2016.
