Akira Isogawa & Designer Rugs

Last week Akira Isogawa showed his range with an exclusive fashion show at Nathan Club in Auckland in association with Rolls Royce.

There was a beautiful suncronicity of beautifully-worked textiles, flowing silk,  and colors.

The event also showcased his collaboration with Designer Rugs this  beautiful ‘floor art’ which was hung on the walls turning the venue into an art gallery.

The rugs will be available exclusively from Designer Rugs in Parnell, Auckland.

About the designer: Akira Isogawa is one of Australia’s most recognized fashion designers, with his Japanese-inspired collections sought after in every fashion capital in the world.

Born in Japan, he immigrated to Australia in 1986 and studied fashion at the Sydney Institute of Technology. Drawing inspiration from contemporary Japanese design.

Here are a couple of his philosophy on design:

“A garment can transcend, giving it a soul.

“I see craftsmanship as an implement with which to realise one’s vision. Past, present and future; that slogan continues in almost everything around which my work evolves. Timeless beauty and femininity in my design is profound, in a way for the wearer to express their inner soul.”
