Glamorous garments featuring prints of audio-visual art by a Japanese scientist and creator wowed the crowd at New York Fashion Week, one of the four top fashion events in the world.

“I saw great potential in ‘attire deriving from sounds,’” said Naoko Tosa, a media artist and professor at Kyoto University’s Disaster Prevention Research Institute.

“Clothes are a familiar part of our everyday lives, and they provide energy to people. My hope is to convey lively energy through artistic clothing,” she said.

A total of 24 kimono, dresses, suits and other items from Tosa’s collection were sported down the catwalk on Sept. 11 last year–all featuring imagery from her mesmerizing video artworks known as “Sound of Ikebana.”

In October, some of her high-fashion creations were put on display at a boutique in Manhattan as well.

Although the name might lead one to expect a floral pattern, “Sound of Ikebana” takes a different approach.

Tosa started making these video art pieces about 10 years ago by using a high-speed camera to capture colored paint and other sticky liquids being mixed and splattered by sound vibrations at 2,000 frames per second, creating unique colors and shapes in the process.

The “Sound of Ikebana” videos achieved high acclaim in Japan and abroad for capturing the beauty in asymmetrical fluid movements. This type of elegance discovered in natural phenomena is seen as a core factor in traditional ikebana flower arrangements.

Tosa got the chance to participate in New York Fashion Week after her work caught the eye of a company involved with the event. The company praised her unique perspective and felt that her technique and artistry conveyed traditional Japan.

Tosa decided to use the mythological story of Amaterasu, the Japanese sun goddess who plunged heaven and Earth into darkness for a time by

Amid sweltering heat and jitters over the Hollywood strike, New York kicked off its Spring-Summer 2024 Fashion Week on Friday, with heavyweights Ralph Lauren and Helmut Lang returning to the industry’s flagship event with fresh ideas.

American luxury brand Coach unveiled its collection of sensual translucent dresses at the New York Public Library in Manhattan on Thursday, but the event was briefly disrupted by animal rights activists.

As Vogue editor Anna Wintour and Jennifer Lopez watched the show, two female protesters from the animal rights group PETA — one covered in body paint that mimicked animal flaying and another holding a poster that read “Coach: Leather Kills” — joined the models on the runway before security led them away.

At another unofficial kick-off event on Wednesday, featuring Naomi Campbell, Doja Cat, Naomi Osaka and Gigi Hadid, the iconic lingerie label Victoria’s Secret teased a film meant to showcase the brand’s new and more inclusive identity after it was criticized for designing garments that objectify women.

The film, entitled “The Victoria’s Secret World Tour,” to be released on Amazon Prime at the end of September, highlights the work of creators and artists from Lagos, London, Bogota and Tokyo.
