Issey col­lec­tion is big in Ja­pan

7 Days in Dubai - - BUSINESS -

The pi­o­neer­ing work of top fash­ion de­signer Issey Miyake has gone on dis­play in Ja­pan in a much-an­tic­i­pated ex­hi­bi­tion.

The Work of Miyake Issey at the Na­tional Art Centre in Tokyo is a mov­ing jour­ney through the Ja­panese de­signer’s cre­ative mind.

The show in­cludes his sig­na­ture pleats that trans­form usu­ally crass polyester into chic.

Issey Miyake has be­come one of the most suc­cess­ful fash­ion de­sign­ers in the world, since start­ing out in the in­dus­try in the early 1970s. Mi­dori Ki­ta­mura, pres­i­dent of Miyake De­sign Stu­dio and the ex­hibit's pro­ducer, said: “He is al­ways for­ward­look­ing. Try­ing to catch up with him is the story of my ca­reer.” said John Carpenter, cu­ra­tor of Ja­panese art at the Met­ro­pol­i­tan Mu­seum of Art in New York, said: “Issey Miyake's gar­ments of his en­tire ca­reer have been dis­played in the grand set­ting of the Na­tional Art Centre, Tokyo, as in­no­va­tive works of art, as they de­serve to be.”
