Part 2 What was the Miyake’s basic concept/ in designing clothing/
and/ how was it received/ in the West?
Miyake Issey is a revolutionary clothing designer.// He shone/ a new light on/ how to
make clothes.// He developed/ a new creative concept/ based on the idea of “A Piece
of Cloth.”// He made clothe/ from a small number of piece of cloth,/ but/ they look
like/ one piece.// The basic concept came/ as a shock to the fashion world/ in the
west./
In Miyake’s view,/ clothing was first made from/ one piece of cloth/ in all countries;/
for example,/ the toga of ancient Rome and sari of India.// No essential difference
can be found/ between clothes in the East and those in the West.// His way of making
clothes does not lie in existing frameworks but rather in concepts/ which go beyond
borders.// It has brought about/ the fusion of Eastern and Western cultures.//

Part 3 What were two important influences on Miyake Issey?
Miyake Issey was born/ in Hiroshima/ in 1938.// When he was only seven years old,/
the first atomic bomb dropped on/ Hiroshima/ and he experienced/ the “flash of light.”
Less than three years later,/ his mother died from/ radiation exposure.// This atomic
bomb experience came to hold/ a deep meaning for him.//
Miyake had another important experience/ in Hiroshima.// When he was in school,/ he
was deeply impressed with/ the design of railings of the two Peace of Bridges.//
They were designed by/ the Japanese American sculpture Isamu Noguchi.// He
designed two bridges with/ “life and death”/ as their theme.// The Peace Bridges
symbolizes/ living,/ and/ the West Peace Bridge represents dying.// The bridges
showed/ Miyake/ the joy of expressing ideas/ through design.//
Miyake became a designer perhaps/ because he had experienced/ those two things.//
However,/ he tried never to be defined/ by his past/ and/ he never shared/ his
memories or thoughts of the “flash o light.”// he thought that/ design had to be
future-oriented.// He tried to bring people/ beauty and joy/ through making clothes.//
