Tomoko Cummings is the artist and owner of the upcycled brand, American Butt Clothing.

Tomoko was born and raised in Sapporo, Japan. It was here that her appreciation of the colorful expression of freedom of American 70’s fashion began and encouraged her to follow her dreams in America. 

She moved to New York City in 2008 and began working for a vintage clothing boutique in Williamsburg, Brooklyn.  Here, she was able to learn the history of American culture, fashion and design. In 2012, she took her experience and love and started working at the Brooklyn Flea Market.

Tomoko started to design her own upcycled clothing line, American Butt Clothing. Shortly after, after having a beautiful daughter of her own, Lil’ Butt Clothing, a toddler version of the American Butt brand, was born. Meanwhile, while continuing to develop her brand, she had amazing experiences as a fashion stylist. Since her daughters are kid models, she made them her brand portfolio.  

In 2023, she's starting a new venture as a wardrobe stylist.
