As reported by AFP, the Japanese designer Issey Miyake (April 22, 1983, Hiroshima) died at the age of 84 on Friday, August 5, in a hospital in Tokyo.
The famous designer is believed to have died of liver cancer.
A statement issued by the Issey Miyake Group confirmed that "at the express request of the designer, no type of funeral or public memorial will be held".
It's been a sad week for the fashion world as the industry mourns the loss of one of the most influential design geniuses of the 20th and 21st centuries.
Miyake is known for transforming textiles into art using his signature technique of rich origami-inspired folds.
During the 1980s, his avant-garde designs helped Miyake become internationally known, and he has since been considered one of the leading and most important designers of our time.
Born in Hiroshima, the artist studied graphic design at Tokyo Tama Art University before moving to Paris to apprentice and work with major fashion designers such as Guy Laroche and Hubert de Givenchy.
In 1973, he decided to create his own collection and that's when a legend was born.
In addition, the Japanese designer has become a part of pop culture and is known as the designer of late Apple co-founder Steve Jobs' trademark black fake turtleneck uniform.
