About Me

HI, I’M RYOUGA FROM BUNKA FASHION COLLEGE

I am very interested in art, architecture, tribal culture, mythology, and many different aspects of this world. On my days off I enjoy exploring museums and reading books to expand my knowledge. I like to increase my exposure to many different things in my daily life to increase opportunity to spark inspiration.

My message explores the power of individual people, no matter bad or good, has a big impact when colliding with others. Recently many different events have been occurring all over the world, and we each have to endure and put effort into different situations. As a result, each person’s actions create a big result. Each individual, together make up a big pattern, and this is the theme I attempt to explore in my collection.

INSPIRATION

I GET MOST OF MY INSPIRATION FROM MODERN ART, SUCH AS, DOT ART AND MOSAIC ART.

I have always been drawn to fine arts and art in general, and have been regularly going to art museums and historical museums. Which has led to my inspiration from mosaics and dot painting.

I was especially mesmerized by a modern artists’ work that include dot paintings and mosaics that I saw last year at a museum. Small parts coming together to form a bigger pattern and the art that comes about from that was so beautiful, and I thought to myself “I hope the world we live in right now becomes like this as well”. So I decided to express that in fashion.

MY WORK

PORTFOLIOS

DETAIL

I WAS PARTICULAR ABOUT THE ORIGINAL TEXTILE THAT I CREATED BY ATTACHING EACH PART BY HAND.

My main focus was the original textile. I used different processing techniques, such as, thermal transfer printing, interfacing and bonding techniques, to create a new and original pattern by hand. One by one I added different fabrics cut into different shapes on top of each other to create a three-dimensional and colorful pattern. I used draping techniques, and purposely kept a flatter form in order for the textile to pop, and focused on the cohesion of the pattern/textile and form.

"Just so people didn't know me and I didn't know anybody. I thought what I'd do was, I'd pretend I was one of those deaf-mutes." -J.D. SALINGER, CATCHER IN THE RYE
