Fashion model Saki Sugawara (24) is making her CD debut next week as part of a new project by the magazine With. On October 6, she will release a photobook called "doll / Saki Sugawara" that will come with a CD and DVD featuring her first song.
The photobook, which is being published by Kodansha, was shot by photographer Osami Yabuta, who has worked with many fashion magazines and is even the official cameraman for Mr.Children. With "doll," he aimed to capture a new side of Sugawara that she hasn’t shown in magazines. The photobook also includes an essay by Sugawara.
The bundled CD contains Sugawara’s debut song "doll," while the DVD contains the music video, a making-of video, and digital photographs.
Sugawara’s first live performance will be on September 29 at the "With Fest 2010," an event celebrating the magazine’s 30th anniversary.
