R.I.P. Eiko Ishioka: July 12, 1939 - January 21,2012

Eiko Ishioka was an Oscar-winning costume designer, known for her work in stage, screen, advertising, and print media, and has been called "Japan’s leading art director and graphic designer."

It's easy to see why.

Elegance and style, simplified and ornate at the same time.

Goodbye, beautiful creature.


  1. Never knew she designed some of these costumes, but what an amazing talent!

  2. oh - she did the Dracula gowns?

    mm.. lovely.
