There is hardly a designer who does not respect Rei Kawakubo, the driving force behind fashion brand Comme des Garçons. Ms. Kawakubo creates conceptual, yet wearable and always one-step-further fashion, using some unique methods of fabrication, challenging the established notions of beauty over the past decades.

“Collection after collection, for 40 years, all I have been doing is moving, questioning, creating a feeling never felt before” says Ms. Kawakuno “ but today I don’t feel too excited about fashion, more fearful that people don’t necessarily want or need strong new clothes, that there are not enough of us believing in the same thing, that there is a kind of burnout, that people just want cheap fast clothes and are happy to look like everyone else, that the flame of creation has gone a bit cold, that enthusiasm and passionate anger for change and rattling the status quo is weakening. But what I still love about it is that playing the fool, acting silly, showing off, being a celebrity designer are all integral and necessary parts of the fashion business. And creation excites me, because without creation there can be no progress.”
