Regional Revitalization

Policy & Approach

As part of the Group’s social contribution activities—which are one of a company’s obligations—Prestige International has long been carrying out initiatives to enrich the local community. Through our establishment of BPO centers, beginning with the Tohoku region, the Group is continuously working to provide environments in regional areas where young people and women can play active roles with peace of mind over the long term and achieve community invigoration.

Prestige International presents

Held under the theme of “Bringing Japanese girls’ culture to the world,“ the Tokyo Girls’ Collection (TGC) is the largest fashion festival in Japan. Since 2009, this festival has also been held in regional cities as a regional revitalization project. Because TGC’s philosophy matches the goal of promoting women’s empowerment and invigorating communities and the Group feels that the event has the potential of realizing further community invigoration, Prestige International sponsored the first TGC event to be held in the Hokuriku region, “Prestige International presents TGC Toyama 2018 by Tokyo Girls’ Collection,” in 2018, and the second held in the region, “Prestige International presents TGC Toyama 2019 by Tokyo Girls’ Collection,” in 2019 as a Platinum Partner. Over the two years, the event attracted around 14,350 visitors in total, promoting Toyama Prefecture as a region that is appealing for young people and women—a place where they can fulfill their dreams and shine.
