Tomo Koizumi Spring Summer 2024 collection lookbok presented at Paris Fashion Week SS24.
Tomo Koizumi, known for his colorful ruffled dresses displayed in museums like the Metropolitan Museum of Art, is preparing for his first solo art show at the Yukiko Mizutani gallery in Tokyo. In his debut presentation at Paris Fashion Week, Koizumi showcased pieces he's working on for the upcoming art show.
Using oil paint, Koizumi hand-smeared rectangles of ruffled fabric to create abstract floral motifs. He then transformed this fabric into voluminous gowns displayed on mannequins at ESMOD fashion school in France. These dresses, while garments, are also considered artworks, and Koizumi plans to showcase them as tapestries or sculptures in Japan.
This marks a departure from his signature rainbow tulle creations, as these designs have a more organic quality with a range of colors, from pastels to darker shades, reminiscent of withering blooms. These creations, seen as both dresses and art, emphasize the idea of creating new categories and ideas within the realm of fashion and art.
