Eiko Ishioka’s my fave. I didn’t feel this sad when McQueen died, honestly. I just learned of it now.
The Fall’s my favorite movie and her costumes always give me an extra reason to watch any film she’s worked on. I was looking forward to so many more movies with costumes done by her.
They’re all so distinctive, strange, fantastic, dark, and beautiful without being deliberately runway or over the top Gaga (yes she is one of Leeroy New’s inspirations anyway).
So very sad to hear of the death of Eiko Ishioka. She was one of my favorite designers and art directors. Her work with Tarsem Singh produced images that are seared into my brain forever for their stunning beauty.
Ishioka created some of the most stunning costumes I’ve ever seen. She will be sorely missed.
What? Oh no… :( Her costumes in The Fall and The Cell were amazing… We’ve lost another great, very different artisan.
