About Spacecat:

Spacecat was created in New York City in 2000, when Yumi Miyanishi made a claymation short film called “Katzilla” (click to view movie)
As a four year old, my favorite thing was making clothes for my Barbie doll! Always interested in fashion and being different, after I started practicing Ashtanga Yoga, I noticed what women were wearing.  Seeing the same yoga/athletic-wear everywhere, I thought there must be other women who would like to dress differently to practice yoga or work out. Moving from New York to New Orleans and then to Miami Beach, the idea of my own  line gradually took shape.
With the encouragement and help of many friends, I decided to use my background in fashion design and create yoga/athletic-wear that I wanted to wear.
Spacecat Inc was launched in June 2010 in Miami Beach, Florida.
