I felt that this patterns have a good artistic sense so I wanted to be good at using colors. Also, how to make dress patterns is in the last part of this book, so I learnt and made some patterns in my work. I felt that contrast of black and white is very beautiful, so I have incorporated black and white reversal.

I have incorporated like patchwork in my work because this work is very beautiful. I thought that it was so attractive to make a garment by gathering a broken piece clothes because clothes were expensive for people in old times. In addition, I thought that reviving rubbish is very important. Also, I felt that many Japanese traditional patterns are used repetition patterns. By incorporating repetition patterns, I was able to create unique and new patterns.

I researched about harrods and I focused on color. All of green men wear green jackets, pants and hats. I thought harrods is special and beautiful place by unified green color. Also, I used light bulb in my work because structure of harrods are illuminated during winter season. So, I was able to express the transience of human life by using broken a light bulb.A light bulb has a lifespan same as human and it is short-lived.

@book (Issei Miyake)

I like how he intergrates different media the piece. Issei pays alot of attention to the material used. His originality and uniqueness is expressed through each thread in the material, and I think theres freedom in his work. He also used plastic, paper and metal in the garment which I find interesting. The pleats he uses adds a 3Dness to the piece, which inreases the sense of presence - I find it beautiful. By seeing Isseis work, I feel more flexible and free with my ideas that comes from my daily life. I felt the importance to engage with anything that we use in our daily lives, that we don't usually pay a lot of attention to. I also felt the importance to gain ideas and concept from wide range of media.

@book (Rei Kawakubo)


COMME de Garcons brings back the traditional style of fashion to the present trend. I like Garcons because the designer is great at using straight as well as curved lines, which creates a unique silhouette. The twist and distortion are expressed through fabric, which I am intrigued by. Also the surface of the material used is distinct, broadening the ways of using materials.

"The human senser"
The human sensor is created by media artist Kasia Molga. This work is amazing wearable costumes. It change colour with air pollution levels.
I went to the v/a museum to gain ideas and inspiriation. This one in particular was intriguing out of all of the work. I like this work because of the geometric shapes are used in interesting forms. The light also enhances the presence of the garment. I think its a modern piece with  structures made using new technolody. I found the lights that lit up the garment beautiful. The severe issue with environmental pollution is expressed through this work, using wide range of colours. It made me want to incorporate this kind of issues and problems into my fashion work.
