    • Fundamentally striving to make the world a prettier place, Eley Kishimoto create work that is clear in intention, executed simply, and with creative flair; they do not succumb to trends and fads. Instead the vision is clear and in the forefront, fashion is used as a platform to communicate with a wide and varied audience. Eley Kishimoto, is a global British fashion and design company with headquarters in London, UK. Founded in the early 1990's by Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto, the company is primarily known for its print design. The principle commercial activity of the company is womenswear fashion and accessories. Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto In a fashion show. 3
    • Label Overview This Asian-inspired label—housed in a three-story building near Brixton prison—is a collaboration between Mark Eley and his wife, Wakako Kishimoto. The U.K.-based pair met while on assignment in the U.S., and in 1992 launched both a marriage and a textile business. With Mark as the business manager and Wakako as the designer, their prints quickly became the go-to for designers from Alexander McQueen to Jil Sander. In 1996 they began their own womenswear collection—noted for its crafty prints and whimsical detailing—and have since collaborated on everything from shoes to jewelry to unorthodox items like phone and computer packaging. In 2008, the pair was also tapped to be creative directors of French-based fashion house Cacharel. 4
    • They use stockings to style the outfits for their collections.their designing techniques are basically bright, optimistic, colorful, positive shades. Puff sleeves in their collections are probably the most endearing feature. They also designs those products that is usually ignored by fashion designers including the automotive industry, architecture, phone/computer technology and packaging, and artist and gallery. They use stripes ,checks,and different textures to promote their designs. Kishimoto's prints inclludes vivid harlequin designs and bold patterns worked from animal and feather motifs—are applied to ruffled dresses and blouses, interspersed with skirts and jackets in cosy tweed and primaries. It's classic Eley Kishimoto: clothes that are friendly and inviting. But that isn't to imply blandness— it is their unashamed prettiness, regardless of trends, that makes them in their own way bold. 5
    • “Graphic” is how Eley Kishimoto characterise their work. Their patterns make a direct assault on the retina. Partly this comes from the screen-printing process, in particular the way the colour separations are made – not dissimilar, in fact, to traditional Japanese stencil-printing. Because each pigment is applied separately, layer by layer, this gives a crispness and immediacy to the printed fabric that is lacking in newer techniques, such as digital printing. Crucially, too, Eley Kishimoto’s patterns are drawn by hand, not computer generated. “For me pattern design is like knitting a long scarf,” explains Wakako. “It’s a flexible process. You need a free mind. 6
    • Mainly both are surface decorators.their major achievements are as follows:- 1. In 2008 Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto were appointed as creative directors of French based fashion house Caharel. 2. With so many strings to their creative bow it is easy to see how they have gained their reputation as the patron saints of print. 3. Eley Kishimoto's collaboration with Eastpak has proved to be such a perfect fit that it's surprising it took this long to happen. Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto are old hands at the creative partnership game, having lent their talents (via eye-popping prints) to companies from Volkswagen to Louis Vuitton, Uniqlo and even the iconic London double-decker bus. Fresh from a hectic London Fashion week, Eley took time to walk us through their multicolored world, the story behind their latest partnership and balancing a crowded professional plate. 4. From a partnership made in the early 90's, Eley Kishimoto quickly gained a reputation for incisive and intelligent print design with their work being displayed on the catwalks of the world through work with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander, to name but a few. 5. Eley Kishimoto has already worked with partners to offer footwear, hosiery, sunglasses, leather belts, and various 'flash' collaborations, under the umbrella of womenswear mainline. 7
    • 6. Since 1998 they have produced twice-yearly collections and their colourful shows have become one of the highpoints of London Fashion Week. Last year, to mark their tenth anniversary, they had a mini-retrospective at the Victoria & Albert Museum in the form of three archive catwalk shows . 7. In 2001 the pair branched out into interiors with a range of patterned tableware and wallpaper. Recently they teamed up with interior design company Typical to produce upholstered and printed furniture, on display in their Bermondsey shop. Now they are actively collaborating with architects, curators and filmmakers to apply their patterns on a larger scale. “To us the most important thing is print,” affirms Mark. “Our thinking is, where can pattern jump onto next?” 8

    • Despite their profile in the fashion press, there is still a degree of mystery about the designers. Some people even assume that Eley Kishimoto is one person. Trawl on the net and you’ll find very little biographical information. You rarely see pictures of them and they don’t have a website. The truth is that they’re not typical fashion people – rather private, genuinely modest and a little shy (particularly Wakako, who calls herself “the quiet one”). Being a live-work couple makes them remarkably self-sufficient. They look to each other for support, rather than relying on the fickleness of the media and the fashion world. “In fashion journalism it’s either, yes they love it, or they don’t write about it,” laments Mark. These two fiercly talented artists establishded their business together back in 1992, and have since built a strong international reputation for their textile & fashion designs . Their accomplishments span from clothing design, lingerie, wallpaper, furniture, sneaker, and sunglasses. They have worked with famous design houses such as Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Hussein Chalayan, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander and the above mentioned Alexander McQueen Wakako Kishimoto, is a darling petite talent who was born in Sapporo Japan in 1965. She graduated from Central Saint Martins with a Ba in fashion and print. Mark Eley was born in Wales in 1968 and 15
    • graduated from Brighton Polytechnic with a BA in fashion and weave. The tandem of Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto show that in the world of fashion, two heads are better than one. Wakako Kishimoto graduated from Central St Martins in 1992 with a BA in fashion and print; Mark Eley was born in Bridgend, Wales in 1968 and graduated from Brighton Polytechnic in 1990 with a BA in fashion and weave. They founded Eley Kishimoto together in 1992, designing prints for Joe Casely-Hayford (1992-94), Hussein Chalayan (1995-96) and Alexander McQueen (1996-97), amongst others. In 1995, Eley Kishimoto produced their first collection, ‘Rainwear’. Print commissions include Jil Sander, Versace, Yves Saint Laurent and Clements Ribeiro). The duo presented their first on-schedule show during London Fashion Week for Autumn/Winter 2001. The label has also expanded to include crockery, furniture, wallpaper, luggage, sneakers, lingerie and sunglasses. Today Eley Kishimoto prints are commissioned by international designers including Marc Jacobs and Louis Vuitton. A retrospective exhibition was held at the V&A Museum in 2002, and in the following year opened a shop in Bermondsey. Spring 2005 heralded the first Eley Kishimoto-Ellesse collection – part of a three season deal. According to their official biography Eley Kishimoto was established in 1992. In those days they were just a couple of struggling freelance textile designers working out of their living room. The fashion house (initially more of a broom cupboard) came four years later. Since 1998 they have produced twice- yearly collections and their colourful shows have become one of the highpoints of London Fashion Week. Last year, to mark their 16

    • We are mesmerized by the design duo Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto. Not only are the two designers absolutely adorable themselves, but their textile prints, clothing and their sense of styling just completely knock us out. We love the stockings they chose to style the outfits with for their 2009 collection. The choice of patterns and colors were brilliant. It’s no wonder they have designed prints for one of the renouned fashion designers, ahem, Alexander Mqueen! 18
