■ Profile of Asako Iwamizu (https://www.asakoapa.com/):
In 2008, he changed from a fashion designer to an artist.
In 2016, he devised an original method called "Kimekomi Art" using old clothes and fabrics from waste materials on waste Styrofoam, inspired by the technique of "Kimekomi Doll", a traditional Japanese craft. The work contains a message about the social problems of low-margin, excessive packaging, and fast fashion, which Japan currently faces.
In 2017, he started a “Kimekomi Art” class.
He has held workshops and performances not only in Japan but also in Uniqlo in Paris, Bangkok, Taiwan, and other places around the world. We continue to powerfully transmit eco-friendly and pop messages from Japan to the world.
