Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake dies aged 84

Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake dies aged 84

Tokyo, Aug 9 (UNI) Revolutionary Japanese fashion designer Issey Miyake, who designed iconic turtle neck jumpers for Steve Jobs, has died, aged 84, his company has announced.
Known for his innovative styles and perfume, Miyake built a global fashion brand and was known to experiment with traditional and modern techniques during his career of over 50 years, the BBC reported.
Miyake died of liver cancer Friday, and a private funeral has already taken place, Japanese media is reporting.
Born in Hiroshima in 1938, Miyake was just seven years old when the city was devastated by an atomic bomb dropped by the US.
He was reluctant to talk about it as an adult, and wrote in the New York Times in 2009 that he did not want to be known as "the designer who survived the atomic bomb", the BBc report added.
In the 1960s he moved to Paris where he worked with lauded fashion designers Guy Laroche and Hubert de Givenchy.
He moved to New York for a short time, before heading back to Tokyo in 1970 to open the Miyake Design Studio.
By the 1980s he was celebrated as one of the world's most pioneering designers as he worked with materials from plastic to metal - and also traditional Japanese materials and paper.
