A new global fashion standard of beauty nurtured by art-Taro Horiuchi (30), designer
Taro Horiuchi founded his namesake brand in 2009. The son of an antique art dealer, he grew up surrounded by old, modern and contemporary works of art. He moved to Britain at the age of 15 and studied photography and video art at London's Kingston University. Eventually he turned his attention to design, graduating from the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp.
The walls of his studio are decorated with beautiful photographs and other artworks he has accumulated at home and abroad over the years. He now transfers his passion for the visual image to his clothing and collection format.
Instead of runway shows, he shows his collections as installations using photographic, video and other visual media. His fusion of artistic fashion with such visual imagery has won him acclaim from professionals on both sides of the divide. He also won the newcomer's award of the Mainichi Fashion Grand Prix in 2012.
He presented a sporty look in this year's spring-summer collection. But his autumn-winter collection is strikingly different. It was inspired by David Lynch's TWIN PEAKS TV series, as well as the artist Andy Warhol. We watch as he works in the studio, shoots his collection in both still and video images, and presents the resulting exhibition.
