WORLD MODE HOLDINGS is a group of people who love fashion and want to contribute to it.
Our human resources business connects people and companies, our education business improves the skills of those who support the industry, our store management business revitalizes stores from every aspect, and our marketing and technology business supports brand growth through strategy and cutting-edge technology. By combining the know-how of our group companies, we will contribute to the development of our clients’ businesses to the best of our ability.
We are developing our business globally based on the experience we have cultivated in Japan. We would like to study abroad and give back to the Japanese fashion industry. We are currently operating in five countries overseas and intend to further expand our business with a focus on fast-growing Asian and ASEAN countries. Our founder decided on the name “World Mode” in the hope that we would become a company that develops its business worldwide, and we are finally getting closer to that goal. As our corporate slogan “Passion in Fashion in Action” suggests, we will continue to move forward with a passion for contributing to the fashion industry.
I am once again happy to be working with all of you. We have been through many crises, but with your help, we have been able to overcome them. I thank you from the bottom of my heart.

Guest of Honor / Mr. Masao Aruga, President, Hermes Japon K.K.
I believe that we have grown together in the past 10 years, through the turmoil of the Corona Disaster and the challenging market. Recently, I had a discussion with my counterpart in Paris that Japan is still a market that can be expanded, and that since diversity has not yet progressed, future growth is very promising if diversity is promoted. To achieve this, we need new ways of working, new values, the creation of a system that accepts diverse people, and the will to make society happy. This is WMH’s area of expertise. I would like to cooperate in creating new diversity and values to create a wonderful Japan and the world.
Mr. Aruga, Hermes Japon
