21st century dresses breathe in 18th century decorative art.
The religion and aristocracy of the 18th century are fused with eternal dresses beyond time and space.

In front of the mirror, I work with the wooden mannequin on which I directly sculpt the dress form by the fabric.The dress has 360 degrees awareness.

Ando’s work is based on a simple proposition : ” Each person has a body.
The body expresses a person’s story and history, the dress is a language the expresses that body , the human body and the dress are both founded on the same principle: constant, unbroken perception “
