These days, people are talking about David Bowie, I have focused on influence that Bowie had in fashion, and about its collaboration with the Japanese designer Kensai Yamamoto.
 Who is Kensai Yamamoto?
 Kansai was born in Yokohama in 1944. He studied at Bunka Fashion College in 1967.
Among the designers with whom he apprenticed are Junko Koshino and Hisashi Hosono; in 1971, he opened his own company, Yamamoto Kansai Company, Ltd., Tokyo.Yamamoto launched his first collection in London in 1971 to international acclaim he become synonymous with his avant-garde designs; sculptural tailoring which wraps and envelopes the body, a layered approach to dressing and use of bright colour and pattern.   His 1975 debut in Paris was followed by the opening of his Kansai Boutique in 1977.
 Japanese designer was a fixture of the '70s and '80s fashion scene thanks to David Bowie, he helped cement Bowie's androgynous look during his Ziggy Stardust tour and on the 1973 Aladdin Sane tour were presented together with custom made pieces for the Fashion in Motion show.
 In 2013 was the subject of the previous Fashion in Motion of Victoria and Albert Museum, presenting archive and specially made pieces spanning Yamamoto’s four decade career.
Yamamoto is also known for his production of ‘super-shows’, which combine fashion with music, dance and entertainment.

 In questi giorni, si parla tanto di David Bowie, io mi sono focalizzata sull'influenza che Bowie ha avuto nella moda, e sulla sua collaborazione con lo stilista giapponese Kensai Yamamoto.

 Kansai è nato a Yokohama nel 1944. Ha studiato al Bunka Fashion College nel 1967.

La sua è una sartoria scultorea che avvolge il corpo, ha un approccio stratificato alla preparazione e all'uso del colore brillante. Al suo debutto a Parigi, nel 1975, fa seguito l'apertura della sua Kansai Boutique nel 1977.
 Il designer giapponese raggiunge l'apice del successo tra gli anni '70 e '80 grazie a David Bowie, con cui ha contribuito a creare il suo look androgino durante il  tour Ziggy Stardust e durante il tour Aladdin Sane nel 1973.
