Yuima Nakazoto (Tokyo, Japan)

by R27 CREATIVELAB on Tuesday, 21 April 2009

Yuima Nakazato has returned to Tokyo after just finishing his degree in fashion design at the Royal Academy in Antwerp. Yuima creates 2 dimensional shapes which mould around the body resulting in some fantastic wearable sculptures and remind me of a futuristic body armour. Jewellery, clothes and shoes are all in his portfolio and at the tender age of 23 years old I wonder what he may show us in the coming years....
