Issey Miyake debuted his first collection in New York in 1971 and began participating in Paris Fashion Week from 1973. His unique concept of clothing as “A Piece Of Cloth” was widely acclaimed throughout the world from the very beginning. An inexhaustible explorer, he has
continued to open up new horizons for making clothes through research, experimentation and development while reimagining the relationship between the human body and clothing.
Placing a high value on fostering various human resources and innovative technologies in the industry since the foundation of the brand, Miyake's spirit of making things has been passed on to a new generation of designers, past and present.
