Editorial Reviews

Review

A comprehensive synthesis of the works and careers of the three Japanese designers who revolutionized the Western fashion world... This is a must read for anyone interested in Japanese fashion. Yuniya Kawamura, Associate Professor at the Fashion Institute of Technology/State University of New York I learned a great deal from Japanese Fashion Designers ... [the book is] well researched with complex concepts broken down, and it would certainly be a helpful reference book for anyone remotely interested in Japanese fashion and/or textile technology. Worn Through Bonnie English here condenses twelve years of research into a book which examines the emergence of the three leading Japanese fashion designers, Issey Miyake (b. 1938), Yohji Yamamoto (b. 1943) and Rei Kawakubo (b.1942), in the last quarter of the twentieth century... The text is very accessible and illustrated throughout with photographs of the clothes being discussed... Twelve years to write a book testifies to Bonnie English's dedication and encourages reader confidence. -- Daniel Milford-Cottam, Victoria and Albert Museum, London Costume
