As a child pianist played ‘twinkle, twinkle little star’ under the tutelage of his music teacher, several of Fujiwara’s design team simultaneously gave the crowd a lesson in paper folding directly on the runway. Just as Dai Fujiwara has nurtured his team for the past 6 years, this was his charming way of passing the baton on, this being his final show for the label. Using a single strip of paper the team folded, pleated and created extraordinary creations that were then placed onto each model, referencing his memorable 2007 Miyake show. As the piano playing became more sophisticated and refined, the clothes did also. Reflective techno fabrics, silks and even leather came in a folded zig-zag forms. As in Escher’s drawings where fish figures morph into bird figures, Fujiwara’s pattern was repeated with gradual changes, morphing from a strict herringbone to a graphic tulip. From an idea, firmly rooted in simplicity and sustainability, to clothes full of complexity and technical ability.
