lace detail.jpgKimono …after studying Rey Kawakubo inspiring approach to fashion, I went on to imply my perception of how  Kawakubo is thinking in her design… I created the KIMONO RECONSTRUCTION Project (visit project website) its main purpose was to redesigns Kimono in the same way Kawakubo redesigned western garments. Knowing nothing about kimono or Japan I went on to learn and develop while following that road, what was initially to be one year project lasted for 5 years, granting me the nonparallel opportunity to dive deep into the Japanese culture and maybe even a soul and to visit this incredible country. Falling in love and ending up ..still not knowing how to redesign a kimono…
