On Tuesday, March 20th, Japanese label Nozomi Ishiguro tambourine showcased their 2012 Autumn/Winter collection on the runway at roomsLINK at belle salle SHIBUYA FIRST.
Nozomi Ishiguro was born in Tokyo in 1964. He graduated from the Kuwasawa Design School, where he studied in the Dress Design Department. He spent the first twelve years of his fashion career as a designer for Comme des Garcons, rising to the level of lead designer on three of the label’s lines. In 1998, he founded his eponymous line under the Comme des Garcons umbrella. This led to the launch of his men’s collection in 2002.
His design influences are wide and varied – from contemporary Japanese and Western fashion to subcultures including gothic, Lolita, and punk. Because of this, some of his clothes are very wearable, while some of his lines are more experimental. He is often cited as a favorite by people we talk to on the street in Harajuku.
Debuting last September, “Nozomi Ishiguro tambourine” is a relatively new label from the designer.
Nozomi Ishiguro’s main brand is popular on the streets of Harajuku. The Nozomi Ishiguro tambourine 2012 Autumn/Winter collection presented at Tokyo fashion week featured casual streetwear looks for men and women that are even more wearable that the main collection. Unlike some of the more conceptual collections at JFW, we expect to see these pieces being worn on the street by Tokyo’s fashionable young people.
