Flower Arrangements by Azuma Makoto

Flower Arrangements by Azuma Makoto

Well ‘Flower Arrangements’ is probably a bit of an understatement. Maybe his work is better qualified as art (if we need to label, which we do) Azuma Makoto’s work ranges from sending a 50 year old bonzai tree into space to putting 10,000 mini jars filled with flower petals in the shopwindows of Colette in Paris.

For the last Dries van Noten Fashion Show he repeated his project ‘Iced Flowers’; flower arrangements captured in large blocks of ice. These ‘Iced Flowers’ were showcased along the runway and were so overpowering that we even didn’t noticed the garments….oops (That’s how we, fashionangels at Mimi Berlin, got aquinted with Azuma Makoto’s work)
