Biography[edit | edit source]
Early Career[edit | edit source]
Before becoming an idol, Kamiya Saki was very involved in the Tokyo street fashion scene, particularly in the then-emerging Dolly-kei style. She was a regular subject of street fashion blogs and was often in attendance at the parties held by her favourite boutique, Grimoire, where she became a member of staff.
In January 2010, Saki launched her own brand of handmade accessories, Reveur de LYRA.
Saki's idol career started in 2011 when she joined Mero Mero Clover, a Momoiro Clover Z tribute group. She took the role of Momota Kanako. The group disbanded when she joined BiS, and she was unable to attend their final show due to work conflicts.

On August 11th, Kamiya Saki was suspended from POP, the official reason being that she had been repeatedly committing prohibited acts. As POP had been kicked out of Tokyo Idol Festival just ten days prior due to rowdy fan behaviour, it was believed that Saki's encouragement of this behaviour was the biggest, if not only, contributor to her suspension.
