To Japan with Love……

“The woman is the most perfect doll that I have dressed with delight     and admiration.”

One of our biggest projects to date has been for one of our dearest and most fashionably unconventional clients. I created a total of 15 understated yet very unique garments for work and fun for her.

The most amazing detail in the mix is that these garments are going to be flaunted in Japan, by far one of the most famous places for diverse experimental fashion.

Japan has such a rich history in the arts, crafts and in fashion, and some of the most brilliant designers have come out of Japan, from Issey Miyake to Junya Watanabe who have fused the very essence of Japan into their spectacular creations.

My biggest inspiration to date has always been the goddess of draping Madeline Vionnet who created breathtaking pieces with minimal or often zero stitching {a true understanding of the fundamentals of great design, understanding your materials and the contouring of the body}; an important skill which I have seen only Japanese designers have mastered to perfection by translating the art of origami into their clothing. Essentially, magic!

This commissioned project has been a great learning experience for me and right up my alley as my finest moments are when I am experimenting! Pictures will be up soon! If you would like to have us make you some unique pieces, you know where to find us!
