“A garment can transcend, giving it a soul.

“I translate fabrics into soft and romantic silhouettes, using natural fabrics like silks and cottons, which are kind to the skin.

“Distressing fabrics and alchemically treating them, gives the feeling of already ‘being loved’ thus evoking emotion. Even one-off fabrics found in flea markets can be given new life.

Akira Isogawa
