Evocative Sculptures And Wearable Pieces Were Created With Ordinary Fabric

According to Mariko Kusumoto: “I am fascinated by the potential of common materials like polyester, nylon, and cotton, and my goal is to bring out each fabric’s inherent characteristics and beauty.

Using a proprietary heat-setting technique, I give the fabric a new identity through reshaping it into three-dimensional forms. In addition to finding inspiration in the material itself, I am motivated by the process of experimentation, during which accidental discoveries lead to new ideas.

My designs have been incorporated into jewelry and sculptural pieces and in collaborations with fashion designers Lela Rose and Jean Paul Gaultier; in January 2019, my work appeared on the Jean Paul Gaultier catwalk at Paris Haute Couture. My work has also been included in museum collections around the world, including the Victoria and Albert (London), Museum of Arts and Design (NYC), MFA Boston, Los Angeles County Museum of Art, Swiss National Museum (Zurich), and Musée des Arts Décoratifs (Paris).”
