Traditional Japanese aesthetics, Wabi-sabi ‬is a world view centred on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete”. It is a concept derived from the Buddhist teaching of the three marks of existence‭ , specifically impermanence , suffering  and emptiness or absence of self-nature‭.‬

Her Graduate Collection f/w 2o19  Fuubutsushi ((n.) the things - feelings, scents, images - that evoke memories or anticipation of a particular season ) presents a whole white/cream collection, with an innovative approach to textile designs as an addition to traditional Kimono silhouettes.  White - the beginning and the end of colour, represents death and mourning, which can also mean age, misfortune, purity, neutrality, cunning or treachery.  It is to tell you a story of finding beauty in imperfection and profundity in nature, of accepting the natural cycle of growth, decay and death.  It is to remind us we are all but transient beings on this planet - that our bodies as well as the material world around us are in the process of returning to the dust from which we came.

and, to treasure every moment, for it will never recur.
