While in Japan, Gaga gave a press conference held at Tokyo Sky Tree, the world’s tallest broadcasting and observation tower located in Sumida, Tokyo.
For this very special moment she donned a bespoke wearable piece of art, “Mirror Dress” by young Japanese designer Daisuke Yoshikawa.
I made another virtual trip to Tokyo, to meet my friends at Candy / Fake Tokyo, who “discovered” Daisuke Yoshikawa and introduced his work to Gaga, and the designer himself (who kindly shared below exclusive sketch and “work in progress” sheets with me).
It took a year since the idea was born until the dress was finished.
Inspired by the architecture, Daisuke Yoshikawa, who’s curently working on his own fashion label Grapeman, used about 3000 pieces of mirror!
If you plan to visit Tokyo these days, you can see the dress up close as the one-of-a-kind piece is displayed in Candy shop window!
Gaga accessorized the look with matching headpiece, Thom Browne by Dita TB-001 white gold sunnies with side shields and horn brow bar from Gogosha, and silver Daffodils by Christian Louboutin.
