Unique Piece Collection

1996

My first fashion show since coming to Paris.

A place near the sky where you can see the Eiffel Tower.

I fitted the models one by one to find one original model who fits one original dress.

It overlapped with their youthful purity and my youthful passion.

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 “
