Akira Shows Off for Oyster
This weekend we caught up with Akira Isogawa to view his Resort 2011 collection. We've always been a fan of Akira's attention to detail: the intricate beading, sheer silks and beautiful prints. This season was no exception, with stunning abstract peony petal and phoenix prints, Akira's signature draped shapes and delicate sequin and beading embellishments in matte finishes. The whole collection had a lightness of touch, richness and texture to it that whispered luxury. It's no wonder he's one of Australia's most successful designers overseas, in fact, he mentioned that he no longer even needs to show his collections on the runway in Australia or Paris.
