honoyo : Inspirational Stylish Fun

Apr 10 2014: Tokyo hat designer Honoyo Imai’s creations are stylish, fun, and very different…

Kjeld Duits: @Baterka: But I can understand your English. ^^
Baterka: Amazing! I really like how looking his way. (Search for school ,changes etc) Video was inspiring. :-) You can see that passion of creation. She is really charming! (Sorry for my terrible English :-))
Kjeld Duits: @Mathieu S.: Thanks, Mathieu. Yes, Honoyo is a very inspiring person. More artist than designer, I think. That attracts me to her hats even more. She gives you the opportunity to wear art in your daily life. I hope my readers will support her in a big way. Either by sharing this interview, or by purchasing one or more of her works. I really want her to succeed! She deserves it. ^^

Dorothy Vacance

Jan 10 2012: Ayano “Gon” Nakayama of Dorothy Vacance transforms old men’s dress shirts into high fashion

Delilah Flores: Hope all is well with your designs. Delilah
Kim: I fell in love with her “tie collared shirt”
Kjeld Duits: @Lactose Intoler-Art: Yes, I think you have hit the nail right on the head there: very tasteful, avant-garde, and unique but also totally her and independent from any major trends influencing the Tokyo fashion scene. I love Gon’s work. She has managed to bridge the gap between other visual art and fashion, but in such a way that the results are actually wearable.
