Cot­ton Candy Suc­cess: TOMO KOIZUMI

Marie Claire (Malaysia) - - Fashion -

Tomo Koizumi ex­ploded onto the fash­ion scene with his enig­matic cot­ton candy-like dresses. His creations are not for the meek and faint-hearted. Lush, colour­ful and other-worldly, Tomo Koizumi’s dis­tinc­tive style takes one’s breath away in a heartbeat. Al­though he had dressed Lady Gaga and sev­eral Ja­panese pop stars, the de­signer only gained world­wide at­ten­tion when his works of art were stum­bled upon by stylist, Katie Grand. Through this fate­ful con­nec­tion, the de­signer pre­sented his de­but FW19 col­lec­tion at Marc Ja­cob’s store in Madi­son Av­enue for New York Fash­ion Week, where the col­lec­tion was met with rave re­views. To date, he has dressed Mi­ley Cyrus and Hong Kong ac­tress and singer, Miriam Ye­ung. Two of his special creations have also been ex­hib­ited at the MET mu­seum (one piece re­mains as a per­ma­nent col­lec­tion at the mu­seum).
