I collect people’s experiences. I feel that I build myself not only on my experience, but on other people’s. That’s important to me. I like to work with people who are better at what they do than I am. I like to work with people who are willing to share.
The Japanese designer Issey Miyake gained international recognition through the launch of his “Pleats Please” line (1993) using textile technology to advance fashion ease in his signature slouch silhouettes. Here, he demonstrates his creative depth for music tastes, choreography, and the form in motion at his first, New York fashion show at FIT (Fashion Institute of Technology) in 1975.
Miyake developed friendships with other icons who shared his progressive outlooks on life, technology and design. Apple Computer legend Steve Jobs asked Miyake to design his signature black turtleneck. And in 2009, wrote a letter to President Obama in 2009 inviting him to walk the Isamu Noguchi Peace Bridge to make a symbolic and concerted effort to globally disarm from nuclear weapons. Prior, Miyake had made several declines to speak about his experience of surviving Hiroshima’s Atomic attack as a child.
LA see you soon!
