»»Japanese designer Issey Miyake first launched his collection with outstanding cutting and new fabrics in Paris in 1973. However it hasn’t been imported to Taiwan until the debut of its colorful diffusion line Pleats Please.
I remembered when I was the dancer and model for the show, I was impressed by the high-tech-produced fabric’s flexibility, the special structure of the garment. To promote Pleats Please, Given Group, the company imported the brand, even held an exhibition in Kaohsiung Museum of Fine Art.
In 2013, Given Group once again offered the garments from four diffusion line of Issey Miyake in Hanshin Department Store to pay tribute to the design master. Although I have seen the charm of the garment before, I was still shocked by the creative fabrics and patterns from me and Pleats Please.
Due to the extremely hot temperature in Kaohsiung, we changed the walking route. With the pressure of making everything perfectly and delivering the creative combination of body language and garment, all the models amazingly walked on the right route and the team worked so well. Thanks for all the members of the team, the hardworking models and the support from Given Group, which gave me such an unforgettable memory in my career. ««
