From March 16 to June 13, an exhibition at the National Art Center in Tokyo is dedicated to the coveted Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake. His works, which combine innovative technology and traditional motifs from the culture of Japan, are presented in a very modern and peculiar way by the graphic designers Taku Satho and Tokujin Yoshioka. Fashion fashion meets modern art not only in the exhibition, but can also be seen in all of Miyake’s works, in every item of clothing

The Japanese fashion designer decided to study graphic design in Japan and then moved to Paris for his fashion training. As a result, he has developed his expertise in two areas – technology and textiles, which he has implemented and shaped in his approach. An important point in his designs is the relationship between fabrics and body movements. This is where a piece of clothing reaches its full potential.

Issey Miyake developed a fabric, a composite between cotton and polyester, that can be shaped by heat and thus clothing is made from just one piece of fabric. He implemented traditional Japanese materials in fashion through contemporary techniques and processing methods.

Tokujin Yoshioka and Issey Miyake have worked together on numerous projects for years
