Say hai to... Meg Yamamoto

Happy New Year Hai Society - welcome to 2021! We're kicking off the year with an interview from  one of our most ethereal model friends, Meg! Meg was  discovered online and has since left her home in Japan to model for many major brands and magazines, alongside multiple indie jobs where she has the chance to showcase her laid-back yet eclectic style. 

We first got to know Meg when she modelled our bags for  Surf Code, a store we adore, who sell Hai in South Korea.  Since then Meg has taken her Little Blue Bag out and about on the streets of Seoul on many occasions and we have  been gifted with a joyful internet friendship filled with adorable gifs and love-heart Emojis <3 

Read on to learn more about Meg and discover where she takes her Nelly Bag...

Hi Meg....or should we say Hai!


Can you describe what you do?

I am a fashion model from Japan and based in Seoul, South Korea. It all started when I got DM on Instagram for modelling. I have been working as a model in Seoul for three years. I mainly do modelling for magazine editorial such as vogue, W, cosmopolitan. I live like a chameleon.

Where do you consider home? When do you know you are home? 

I would say Sapporo Japan is my home since I can have a good rest and sleep like a baby. I am living by myself at the moment. I find myself having a hard time to fall asleep here.

Describe how you feel when you are on a creative Hai? (high) 

When I stand in front of the camera!

The best, untalked about place in your city? 

There is my secret place in Hangang Riverside Park located in my neighbourhood where I can relax under a starry sky. It is hard to find a place to see stars in a urban area so I keep it my secret!

How, or where do you go to find inspiration? 

Meditation. I used to go on a vacation for my day off before this pandemic started. Nevertheless, it is hard to go out at the moment so I meditate on my own at home. When I get inspiration from around me I see my friends or see the sky. I try to get inspiration from something little around myself. 

What do you do when no one is watching? 

Be goofy

What's the feeling fashion gives you?

Satisfaction and happiness. I wake up with a different feeling every morning so I change my fashion depending on my mood. When I wear my favourite clothes, that makes me feel energetic and vibrant. Fashion has such a big power to love myself more. There is no pressure and rules.

Where are you going to take your Hai next?

Tomorrow’s date with my boyfriend
