Issey Miyake


Miyake was born on April 22, 1938 in Hiroshima, Japan. He studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. After graduation, he worked in Paris and New York City. Returning to Tokyo in 1970, he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women’s fashion.

San Francisco Chronicle fashion editor Sylviia Rubin credits Miyake together with Babette Pinsky with “reinventing” the Fortuny pleat in the 1980s
