Issey Miyake to Receive a Top Honor

Japan's Emperor Akihito will bestow the prestigious Order of Culture on Issey Miyake at Tokyo's Imperial Palace.

TOP HONORS: Issey Miyake is gearing up to receive a coveted honor next week. Japan’s Emperor Akihito will bestow the prestigious Order of Culture on the designer at Tokyo’s Imperial Palace.

 

The ceremony will take place November 3, coinciding with the national Culture Day holiday. “I see this decoration as a form of encouragement to all the people with whom I work,” Miyake said. “This includes not only our young designers but also those in the textile industry: spinners, weavers, knitters and dyers all of whom are still managing to create things of beauty and quality despite very difficult economic and manufacturing conditions in [Japan].”
