Noma Han at Ikumi Spring 2015 NYFW

Cymbeline for Hanae Mori wedding dress featured on Wedding Inspirasi.

Hanae Mori, American Vogue, October 1986.

Hanae Mori’s workroom in her Tokyo house designed by the renowned Kenzo Tange. This is Mori’s personal dress form, bought in the US in the 70s. “It’s old and unsteady,” she said, “but I’ll never change it for a new one.” Mori was a byword in the 70s and 80s, building a successful fashion business across three continents.

HANAE MORI: the first Japanese designer to show her collections on the Paris runways & the first Japanese fashion house to recognized by Paris’ Federation Francaise de la Couture. If you don’t know who this woman is, get on it!
PS - I just had the privilege of smelling Hanae Mori No. 6, which is being released in late February. It smells divine. I also though it was in good taste for them to skip  ”H.M. No. 5” as an homage to Chanel. #classy
