Fukuko Ando

Fukuko Ando | Japanese, fashion designer based in Paris. After six months at Christian Dior (1993), she collaborated with Christian Lacroix on his haute-couture collection (1999-2002). She exhibited solo at the Biennale de Paris and at Design Week Monterrey in Mexico 2004. Each of her dresses is unique. In front of a mirror, she applies a variety of textures on the body of a wooden mannequin, check them from every angle and cuts on the bias into fragments which then she sews up again by hand through a delicate and time-consuming procedure. She says, "My creations are masses of energy. I fill them with good vibrations. This energy is invisible, like music. The melody envelops your body. These vibrations change the inner you. You can feel new sensations within. Your new energy then expands outside yourself. Now you can create your own universe. It's your creation." www.fukukoando.com. Pleiades: Fukuko Ando created a series of 140 dolls in crochet during the summer of 2005. They are twenty variations of seven sisters respectively named after the seven stars that form the Pleiades; Alcyone, Merope, Maya, Electra, Taygeta, Coele and Atlas. Fukuko Ando has endowed each doll with different codes and messages, based on her concept of 'there are no two human bodies which are exactly the same'.
