Wearable Fashion Meets Street Fashion @ Parkamaya.
Finally a fashion related event to write about, been itching to write more about fashion related stuff rather than just beauty, gotta expand my horizon yo!
Have to thank Parkayama and a certain hot mama for having me here especially to see the grand maestro himself, Kazuiko Takakura-san who came down all the way from Japan to perform his artwork live here in Malaysia.
Trust me, I’ve been into tie-dye myself since I’ve excelled in my batik exams during SPM, everyone chose design a logo while I chose Batik lol. And learning how to do it on my own wasn’t easy, tie dye tutorials online is easy to find these days but not why don’t you try making it ;-) You will soon think otherwise, hence that’s why I am really intrigue on how Takakura-san managed to master such a delicate art technique.
Takakura-san’s label Takakurazome Kyoto is no stranger to the fashion industry both in Japan and international as it’s been featured/ collaborated with brands like Issey Miyake (my favourite bag designer & fragrance), Comme des Garscon and Nike “SSW”.
So, Takakurazome Kyoto is no small brand out there, it is in fact a luxury textile brand that has been around since 1897, but art isn’t about the money to Takakura-san, what makes him satisfied is people willing to buy his products at the end of the day, I personally understand that satisfaction feeling as a a fellow designer. And thanks to Parkamaya, who doesn’t need much introduction as we all know this biggest Asian Retail Concept store in Fahrenheit88, KL who brings in all kinds of unique brands has brought Takakurazome Kyoto unto their roof for 2015.
See? It’s a win-win situation for all 3 parties.
