From Friday, January 15 , 2021 to Sunday, February 28 , 2021, at the flagship store " DENIS MADE IN TOKYO " in MIYASHITA PARK, an artist " The exhibition " Hairs " will be held to display and sell original works by Asako Iwamizu .
During the event period, we will exhibit and sell many works called "Kimekomi Art" unique to " Asako Iwamizu ", which is made by layering old clothes and scrap fabrics based on scrap Styrofoam. Since it is a collaboration with " DENIS TOKYO ", which handles hair care products, you can see original works modeled after celebrities with distinctive hairstyles.
Also, on weekends, MIYASHITA PARK will hold workshops for children of elementary school age and younger as well as adults where they can actually experience "Kimekomi Art". Workshops using waste materials by Asako Iwamizu have been well received as a good opportunity to think about fashion and the environment. This time, we will receive scrap materials from “CLOUDY” (https://cloudy-tokyo.com/), an apparel brand with an African taste, which also has a store in MIYASHITA PARK. Please take this opportunity to visit " DENIS MADE IN TOKYO ".
■ Comment from Asako Iwamizu:
“This time, under the title Hairs, DENIS TOKYO’s commitment to hair care will be made into a work in my own way. There will be works that are particular about hair, such as those of world celebrities and Japanese hair. Please enjoy the pop and colorful works. ”
■ 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.
