Renowned Japanese fashion designers Hanae Mori and Issey Miyake have passed away, and other style news that caught our eye in August.

Fashion Quote

I love these two quotes from fashion designer Issey Miyake, who passed away in August (via That’s Not My Age):

“In the field of clothing design, there is a tendency to look up to the young. What is totally being ignored is that clothing is for everyone… I feel that it is our responsibility to design for everyone, and for all generations.”

“When I make something, it’s only half finished. When people use it — for years and years — then it is finished.”
