FALL WINTER 2023.24 COLLECTIONS
In the past 3 years, my health problems led me to become aware of environmental issues that could be the cause of my health problems. At the same time, I have started to think that creating my collection itself may expedite ecological destruction, such as the mass disposal of clothing. I noticed that it is not just about other people’s problems. That thought made me launch a new “Circularity Project” in tandem with my brand ATSUSHI NAKASHIMA.
Through this project, I learned that my clothes could be renewable and that I could create high-design pieces with recycled materials from my past collections. The “Circularity Project” collection could be a new experience to enjoy fashion for all the people who love fashion. I hope that more people who meet our show get interested in circularity and taking a part in it. Of course, it is hard to achieve that we recycle 100% of clothes now. This show is the first step of our project to raise environmental issues in the world. I’m trying to reduce pressure on the environment and running to the goal eventually.
