Future Beauty: 30 years of Japanese Fashion

This is what I'm reading at the moment, Future Beauty: 30 years of Japanese Fashion.  Slowly but surely.  The imagery is incredibly inspiring and the words give me a deeper understanding of how and why the designers go about their practice.  The book accompanies the exhibition that was held at the Barbican in London last year.

In need of something to read

Thank you Peppermint Magazine and Leeyong, for the interview you did with me, a while back.  You can still get this in stores around the country if you'd like to read more about the story behind the MüCKE label.

 Some other great reading is this piece about Isobel Davies.  She is fearless, focused and passionate, where it is most needed.  Grab the latest copy of Dumbo Feather for an inspirational read on Davies and other fascinating people.

An inspirational soul.

I really enjoyed this interview with Yohji Yamamoto, about his solo exhibition at the V&A last year.  I was so sad I couldn't make it to London for the show.

This interview is an incredibly interesting view into the life of a designer who I much admire and who rarely gives such long interviews.  It offers a great insight into his life's work. A self confessed 'fashion hater', I find much inspiration in his approach to an unsustainable industry which focuses on constant change and constant disposal of that which is not worn out.

A gentle and ambitious soul and master in my mind Yohji Yamamoto offers me constant inspiration through his dedication to perfecting the dying art of making, through fashion.
