Issey Miyake Exhibition at National Art Center in Tokyo

Forty-five years of innovative fashion and design by Issey Miyake are on display, promising an "unprecedented" insight into the fashion designer's career from 1970 to today. Miyake, 77, is best known for his origami-like garments, technological development of textiles and unique approach to fashion. From the brand statement, "Miyake has always explored the relationship between a piece of cloth and the body, and the space that is created as a result, unrestricted by any existing framework… he persistently undertakes research and development to create clothing that combines both innovation and comfort."
