About the Event

In March 1992 Miyake was quoted in the International Herald Tribune as saying “Design is not for philosophy – it’s for life”. From a young age, Miyake respected artist Isamu Noguchi, whose novelty inspired Miyake. He was also inspired by fashion designer Madeleine Vionnet’s use of geometric calculations and a “single piece of beautiful cloth”. In Paris, he visited several museums and he mentioned that he was infuenced by sculptors such as Constantin Brancusi, and Alberto Giacometti. In the late 1980’s, he began to experiment with new methods of pleating that would allow both flexibility of movement for the wearer. The fabric’s ‘memory’ holds the pleats.

In the 1990’s, Miyake collaborated with artists for his Guest Artist series; collage maker Yasumasa Morimura, Nobuyoshi Araki, Tim Hawkinson and Cai Guo-Qiang
