YUIMA NAKAZATO Exhibition - HARMONIZE -
"Eventually, each and every garment will be unique and different." This is what YUIMA NAKAZATO envisions as the future of mankind.
Based on this vision, YUIMA NAKAZATO developed an innovative method to manufacture clothes without sewing. Assembling clothes with originally developed parts called "Units" makes it possible to freely combine and rearrange their design, size, and materials, leading to garments that harmonize with everyone who wears them.
This exhibition features the latest collection of YUIMA NAKAZATO introduced at Paris Haute Couture Fashion Week in January, 2018, and its proprietary manufacturing system of innovative clothes along with its new products using Ultrasuede®PX, an environmentally friendly suede texture fabric invented by Toray.
Please experience the future apparel envisioned by YUIMA NAKAZATO, who wishes to deliver ultimate one-of-a-kind clothes to each and every person in the world.

It can be cut off and left as it is without stitching, is uniform and stable and has high industrially productivity, giving Ultrasuede® high affinity with the manufacturing system developed by YUIMA NAKAZATO.
