Rei Kawakubo is renowned for her avant-garde fashion designs. In 1973 she established her company Comme des Garçons, two years later she opened her first boutique in Tokyo, and by the 1980s she added furniture design to her repertoire. Just like her clothing designs, Kawakubo’s forms challenge established ideas of beauty.
