Akira Isogawa
Photography Jean-François Carly Make-up and Hair Peter Philips Model Zora Star
For Fall–Winter 1999, Akira Isogawa fashioned layerable separates which reversed from rough-hewn wools and muslins to scrumptious velvet dévorés in shimmery reds and blacks. “I thought about travelling to some cold country and having clothes which could cover all aspects of the adventures that could occur,” he explained. This need for all-purpose, all-climate gear is one that Isogawa well understands, for he increasingly finds himself en route to Europe and America. Although he presents his collection during Australian fashion week, he meets international retailers and editors during the Paris prêt-à-porter. “The clientele in Australia is small, so I must seek new markets abroad.” He has no plans, though, to depart permanently from the antipodes. “Australia provides an endless source of natural stimulation. There is so much nature and space to inspire one. My role as a designer living here is to express the uniqueness of my country.
