Abstract

A case-study on an Issey Miyake 132 5 collection piece is used to unpack the relationship between clothing and fashion design within the fashion system. Within the conceptual framework of this system, Miyake's making philosophy arguably positions his work as clothes, not fashion. Instead, his work offers a critical response to the fashion system by focusing on the connection between designer and wearer through the material object of clothing, thereby calling into question our understandings of the relationship between fashion and clothing.
