Yuka Yoneda – Founder
Yuka Yoneda is a writer, cheese lover and JeDIY master whose love of recycled fashion led her to start Clossette.com as a resource for folks looking to revamp what they already have in their closets. Her penchant for crafting has a lot to do with what she’s seen around her in NYC, where she was born and raised. She believes that if you can “make it” here, you can “make it” anywhere, so that’s exactly what she does. Yuka is also the managing editor of Inhabitat NYC and her refashioned clothing and DIY ideas have been featured on The Today Show, Glamour, HGTV.com and other websites and magazines. Yuka also writes for Ecouterre and has written for The Daily Green and The New York Times.
