A-Poc Making: Issey Miyake and Dai Fujiwara

Issey Miyake is regarded as a leading fashion designer. He explores the relationship between body and clothing, sculpting the human frame with new modern day fabrics, creating his trademark dynamic shapes and forms. A-POC (A Piece of Cloth) is the result of the collaboration between Miyake and Dai Fujiwara and their quest to revolutionize the process of clothing production. Together they have completely re-thought the process, from the use of new generation raw materials, to the machines used, to the fitting of the wearer. The “tubes” of fabric produced in the A-POC factories, hold complete clothing ensembles waiting to be cut out, thus literally allowing the fabric to be cut and fitted straight on to the wearer. A new concept of clothing manufacture for the fashion industry in the 21st Century.
