Yoshikazu Yamagata, the emperior of the naked empire

Dear Shaded Viewers,

I found a silver envelope in my post today from Yoshikazu Yamagata, the recent Central Saint Martin’s graduate that turned me and Hillary into dolls. Along with a cd containing images from his 2005 Naked Empire collection "THE everyone’s new clothes", enclosed was a plexiglas stand with a photo of me screened onto the transparent surface in what he imagines I wear under my clothes.

This morning I did a short interview with Sebastien Meunier for a project that I’m working on for Barcelona/Vienna. Sebastien asked me if I would like him to keep on his t-shirt or change …his collection is all about the body so we opted for this look in fact this makes perfect company for Yoshikazu’s idea of me for his Naked Empire’s collection, don’t you think?

Later, Diane
