S2E7: The Japanese Avant-Garde Trio

We look at the Japanese fashion triumvirate.

In this episode of Nihongo Master podcast, we talk about the Japanese fashion triumvirate.

Podcast host Azra says, “These three Japanese fashion designers are not only experts at seamlessly fusing traditional and modern, but they have unexpectedly made quite an impact on the Western fashion industry.”

You can’t really sum up Western fashion of the late 20th century without acknowledging the contributions by this Japanese avant garde trio: Yohji Yamamoto, Issey Miyake and Rei Kawakubo. 

 “Made in Japan” now carries a newfound prestige, and we have these fashion designers to thank for.
