The first Japanese woman to introduce high fashion collections in Europe continues to present impressive collections distinguished. East and West reflected on the runway.
He has just been honored as part of the Week for the Paris couture fall-winter 2011-2012 and just an exhibition on his vast creative career is now an excuse to talk about it.
I mean the Japanese fashion designer Hiroko Koshino, who at 73, has virtually remained the symbol of high fashion and oriental loans and permanent influences that have had the West.
Formed in the Bunka Fashion College, Koshino has excelled in translating in their clothes a harmonious blend of the purest oriental-dominated style, but not exclusively, by the kimono-and European avant-garde that are issued from Milan, London and Paris.
Although in 2010 surprised with a crossed by dark colors collection, Koshino garments are usually brightly colored and Baroque stamp. Fitted with flared waists flights from hips tend to also be a regularly Koshino, who are increasingly valued as a fashion bridge between Tokyo and Europe.
After 1983 other creative fashion Japanese "open road" in Paris (as Rei and Issey misake Kawabuko), it was the turn of Koshino. Since then, its contribution to the global gateway has essentially been the "reinvention" of kimono-or-successive adaptations to bring it from its ancient uses up the everyday pret-a-porter or the elegance of a gala evening.
