Kansai Yamamoto

I've been literally obsessed with japanese fashion recently, trying to research as many designers as possible. Kansai Yamamoto certainly leaves me speechless. He was a major player in the revival of classic japanese fashion and worshipped by david bowie(more info here).

"He has an unusual face, don't you think? He's neither man nor woman. If you see what I mean; which suited me as a designer because most of my clothes are for either sex. I love his music and obviously that has influenced my designs but most of all there's this aura of fantasy that surrounds him. He has flair."

- Kansai Yamamoto (June 1973)

I'm hoping to do some sort of fashion history/new designer piece weekly maybe? I'm hungry for more information....need to go to the library asap.
