Fibre Alumni Exhibition

Miyake was born 22 April 1938 in Hiroshima, bulimics Japan. He studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. After graduation, he worked in Paris and New York City.

Returning to Tokyo in 1970, he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women’s fashion.  There is the link about issey Miyake Fall-winter fashion show.

The opening of the  show is fantastic. I think that the music is classic Japanese rhyme. He like use unusual material to design the garments at the opening of the show.

The following image is about his spring collection 2014.

The dress cutting is quite simple but the color can catch people’s eyes. It is a bright idea to make the  from white to colorful then colorful to white.

It like a review for viewers.
