I want something that "may be broken," or "that is going to be broken" to exist so as not to break it.

Hanae Mori



The fashion designer likes glasswork and buy glasses and vases wherever she goes. She says that she is attracted to the transience that "it is over when broken." Designing clothing is also work that "captures the present moment, cuts it out and presents it in shape. She said that her job was to cherish transience. It is good if the daily life that passes as a matter of course should be addressed with such love. From her memoirs,  "Fashion."
