Between art, millinery, jewellery, design and fashion.
It is very difficult to pin the highly talented artist Maiko Takeda down: this woman of (literally) many hats works on the cusp between art, millinery, jewellery, design and fashion. The recent graduate’s creations have been seen by people all around the world as Björk wears them on stage during her tour this year, leaving people in awe of their gravity-defying forms and morphing colours. Raised in Tokyo and educated at London’s prestigious Central Saint Martins and Royal College of Art, Maiko works with extreme precision when honing down concepts and methodically assembling her surreal pieces. Her work has recently been showcased at London Fashion Week and later this autumn you’ll be able to see her work at MuseumsQuartier Wien.
