Japanese influence::Part I

Saturday, February 6th, 2010

In this series I am going to show some sources of my inspiration that I indirectly connect to Japanese Fashion Designers. In early 80’s they came into the world of fashion with revolutionary concepts, futuristic looks, innovative constructions, incomprehensible yet functional triggered many to take a look at Japanese fashion.

Issey Miyake, Yohji Yamamoto Rei Kawakubo are so called founding fathers/mother of modern Japanese fashion.

Up to this moment they continue to excite and surprise. Later newcomer infusions into Japanese modern fashion such as  Junya Watanabe , Jun Takahashi, Akira Isogawa made they way in.  Continuously making this avant-garde phenomena and unique as it gets.

Around the globe people obsess and collect items of clothing from these designer and lucky few museums got a chance to showcase this amazing art to public.

Couple years ago Vanessa has got a chance to visit Asian Art Museum in San Francisco to see this breathtaking and US exclusive exhibit photographed by Hiroshi Sugimoto Stylized Sculpture: Contemporary Japanese Fashion from the Kyoto Costume Institute.

She was lucky to have experienced this amazing exhibit and I was lucky enough to hear and read all about it, I have searched for images and they are stunning, nothing draws your attention to every single detail better than beautifully arranged sculptures along with perfect  set and lighting.
