loose...!!! Ever seen a 2D design unfolding into a dress....?? A man with his legendary ideas has made it possible and has revolutionized the fashion world! A man who has amazed the world with his unique combo of fashion and engineering! Isse Miyake born on 22nd April 1938 in Hiroshima, Japan, witnessed and survived the Hiroshima and Nagasaki attack. Walking over the two bridges: TO LIVE and TO DIE, situated near the epicentre where the Atomic bomb hit in Hiroshima , Miyake had his first encounter with design’s ability to inspire powerful emotional responses and hope. And so he decided to make his career in the field of graphic designing and joined Tama Art University, Tokyo. In 1970, he founded the Miyake Design studio,a high-end producer of women's fashion. He also developed a friendship with Apple's Steve Jobs and produced the black turtlenecks which became a part of Jobs' signature attire. Jobs said, "So I asked Issey to make me some of his black turtlenecks that I liked, and he made me like a hundred of them." Miyake’s unwavering approach to creation is the freedom to have ideas, unconstrained by any pre existing rules or framework, and to be able to make them realities through a tenacious process of research and experimentation. Myake gifted the fashion world with some very unique and aesthetic ideas. A-POC acronym for A Piece Of Cloth: ‘A-POC’ based upon Miyake’s first design concept, is a new and unique suggestion for everyday life, which goes far beyond the boundaries of fashion. It is made using an industrial knitting or weaving machine programmed by a computer. This process creates continuous tubes of fabric within which lie

The customer cuts sleeves and skirts exactly to the length he wants. Specifically. the dress comes out. The A-POC method requires no sewing. a flattened tube of material emerges that contains the finished shirt. It is an idea that totally overthrows the existing standards for making clothes. or pants.

The fabric's 'memory' holds the pleats and when the garments are liberated from their paper cocoon. Issey Miyake’s other famous BRANDS and LINES are: Haat . who creates three-dimensional structures with smoothly curved surfaces by folding flat materials. The 74-year-old Japanese designer has shown nearly 100 collections and won almost every fashion award in existence. Haat means 'village market' in Sanskrit. where they are pleated. (Since 2000). he began to experiment with new methods of pleating that would allow both flexibility of movement for the wearer as well as ease of care and production. skirts. they are ready-to wear.PLEATS PLEASE: Inspired by the work of computer scientist Jun Mitani.

A range of clothing that expands from two-dimensional geometric shapes into structured shirts. He sent one final zinger down the runway: 23 models wearing a single dress. Miyake has boiled and melted fabric and played with bamboo and ultrasound.  .
