Akira. Japanese designer. From 1987 he has lived and worked in Sydney, Australia. As an emerging creator of the late millennium, he started to design T-shirts. Harper’s Bazaar wrote that his clothes are “the best vision for the eyes”. In 1999 his creations caused real hysteria episodes at Browns in London. His style has the delicacy of origami, of hand-painted silks, but not to the detriment of modernity. Some of his creations are showing at the Powerhouse, the Museum of Design in Sydney.
