Issey Miyake

DESIGN REVEALED FROM A FOLD
Issey Miyake is known for his stylized, architectural clothing. Created within Mr. Miyake's Reality Lab - with inspiration from Computer Scientist, Jun Mitani, and with R+D team, including textile engineer Manabu Kikuchi and pattern engineer Sachinko Yamamoto, the clothing begins as a folded origami-like form. As it unfolds, a dress is revealed.
While "design" is defined as, "a plan or drawing produced to show the look and function or workings of a building, garment or other object before it is built or made", Mr. Miyake and group travel beyond the definition - into its essence - revealing, not only a garment, but something extraordinary.
