I make clothing, and I don't care about trendy things.
The purpose - where I start - is the idea of use. It is not recycling, it's reuse.
I did not want to be labelled 'the designer who survived the atomic bomb,' and therefore I have always avoided questions about Hiroshima.
I love to be free to explore, research, and evolve.
There are no boundaries for what can be fabric.
I do not create a fashionable aesthetic... I create a style based on life.
Technology allows us to do many things, but it is always important to combine it with traditional handcrafts and, in fact, use technology to replicate dying arts so that they are not lost.
Many people repeat the past. I'm not interested. I prefer evolution.
