Born in Hiroshima, 1938, Miyake is honored as a founder of Japanese avant-garde fashion movement. He was trained in graphic design and studied tailoring in Paris. He had been known for his loose, unstructured clothes. But, for the the 1989-1990 seasons, he was experimenting with the stretch polyesters, very short shorts (on stage right models) and cropped bodices (stage left), shown here over body suits.
