At the age of 84: Japanese fashion designer Miyake died

Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake has died at the age of 84. He succumbed to liver cancer on August 5, his office announced on Tuesday, according to the media.

Since the 1970s he has pursued the concept of making clothing from a single piece of fabric. His designs with innovative silhouettes and heavily pleated fabrics are famous. This is how Miyake's sensational Pleats Please and A-POC collections came about. Born in Hiroshima, Miyake studied in Tokyo and Paris, and presented his first collection in New York in 1970.

In 2005 he was honored for his life's work with the Japanese "Praemium Imperiale", which is also considered the Nobel Prize for the Arts. A year later he was awarded the Kyoto Prize for his "visionary clothing concepts". The Kyoto Prize, established in 1984 by Kazuo Inamori, the founder of the Japanese technology group Kyocera, is one of the most important awards in the field of science and culture, alongside the Nobel Prize.
