Designer — Rei Kawakubo, founder and creative director of COMME des GARÇONS, is arguably the most influential designer of all time. A designer with no formal training who marches to the beat of her own drum. Celebrated as creator of the deconstructed and uniform black looks in the early 80′s now synonymous with high end fashion. Never wanting to remain stagnant, she added to her colour palette and has been the originator of many a trend, always staying ahead of her contemporaries. Impossible to sum up the influence Kawakubo has had on fashion today in a single paragraph!
