Japanese fashion legend

120319-0221

Hiroko Koshino (ヒロココシノ, HIROKO KOSHINO DESIGN OFFICE INC) is one of Japan’s most famous designers. She has been designing for 50 years and has shown her work around the world. Hugely influential, Koshino occupies a central position in Japanese fashion. Her fashion empire includes perfume and cosmetics in addition to her clothing range.

She draws her inspiration from anything that catches her eye, from street fashion to ethnic culture. Her drive, energy and productivity are legendary and make it hard on her staff who often find it difficult to keep up.

Koshino was born in 1937 in Kishiwada, Osaka and attended Bunka Fukusou Gakuin. After she graduated in 1961, Koshino became a designer at Ginza Komatsu. She opened her haute couture atelier in Osaka’s Shinsaibashi in 1964.

In 1978, she became the first Japanese designer to show in Rome’s ALTA MODA. HIROKO KOSHINO International Co. Ltd. was established in 1982. At the same time she started a women’s ready-to-wear line and began showing at every Paris Collection through 1993. She stopped because she felt it was a waste of money.

In addition to being a prolific fashion designer—her shows are always enormous—Koshino is also a very well-respected calligraphy artist and has had her work displayed in several museums.
