In 2006, I was wondering about the inevitability of my own design while feeling doubts about the era of surplus.Since I was a child, I was interested in used clothing and antique culture, so I arrived at "Liquid Knit", a way to utilize the used clothing and the leftover cloth that was sleeping in the fabric store. As I continued to make things like that, I got offers from Comme des Garcons and Isetan. The liquid knit, which is a combination of the old and the new sensation, may have seemed to be a mysterious work in which the past and the future coexist, neither a cutting-edge trend nor a novel and unusual mode. ..For better or for worse, "fashion is a mirror of the times."With the help of the information revolution and digitalization, the magical black box that reflects the trend was soon shed light. And trends began to be replaced by "numbers and symbolization".The longing and enthusiasm for the fashion industry, such as the game of competing numbers, which has a fast consumption cycle, has disappeared. However, in recent years, the consumption cycle has been reviewed, and it seems that the symbolization of trends has been completed. In such a flow, I could see my new position. In the future, I think it will be necessary to create highly transparent products and their mechanisms to circulate the excess products. Rather than imposing eco, the mechanism is such that the thing itself is fun, beautiful, and convenient, and then ecology follows. Now that he participates in ECONET PROJECT and engages as a creative director, he builds a universal and cyclical cycle not only in fashion but also in art and product design. I think that is my next job to face. TYLER.
