Issey Miyake is a Japanese fashion designer. He is known for his technology-driven clothing designs and fragrances, such as L'eau d'Issey, which became his most well-known product. Miyake was born on April 1938 in Hiroshima, Japan, he studied graphic design at the Tama Art University in Tokyo, graduating in 1964. After graduation, he worked in New York City. Returning to Tokyo in 1970, he founded the Miyake Design Studio, a high-end producer of women's fashion. In the late 1980s, he began to experiment with new methods of pleating that would allow both flexibility of movement for the wearer as well as ease of care and production; the garments are cut and sewn first sandwiched between layers of paper and fed into a heat press, where they are pleated. The fabric's'memory' holds the pleats and when the garments are liberated from their paper cocoon, they are ready-to wear, he did the costume for Ballett Frankfurt with pleats in a piece named "the Loss of Small Detail" William Forsythe and work on ballet "Garden in the setting".
He had a long friendship with Austrian-born pottery artist Dame Lucie Rie. She bequeathed to him her substantial collection of ceramic and porcelain buttons, which he integrated into his designs and presented in new collections, he developed a friendship with Apple's Steve Jobs and produced the black turtlenecks which would become a part of Jobs' signature attire. Jobs said, "So I asked Issey to make me some of his black turtlenecks that I liked, he made me like a hundred of them."In March 1992 he was quoted in the International Herald Tribune as saying "Design is not for philosophy—it's for life."In 1994 and 1999, Miyake turned over the design of the men's and women's collections to his associate, Naoki Takizawa, so that he could return to research full-time. In 2007, Naoki Takizawa opened his own brand supported by the Issey Miyake Group and was replaced as Creative Director by Dai Fujiwara who ran the House of Issey Miyake until 2012; the design duties were split as of the Spring/Summer 2012 collections, with Yoshiyuki Miyamae appointed head designer of the women's collection and Yusuke Takahashi designing the men's line.
As of 2012, he is one of the co-Directors of Japan's first design museum. From March 2016 the largest retrospective of his work was organized at The National Art Center, celebrating 45 years of career. Mr Miyake "oversees the overall direction of all lines created by his company" though the individual collections have been designed by his staff since his'retirement' from the fashion world in 1997. Issey Miyake - main collection line, subdivided into men and women collections, designed by Dai Fujiwara Issey Miyake Fête - colorful women's line that "draws on the technological innovations of Pleats Please" Pleats Please Issey Miyake - polyester jersey garments for women that are first "cut and sewn and pleated " "to permanently retain washboard rows of horizontal, vertical or diagonal knife-edge pleats."

The scent was followed by L'eau d'Issey Pour Homme in 1994.

Sir Cecil Walter Hardy Beaton CBE was an English fashion and war photographer, painter, interior designer and an Oscar–winning stage and costume designer for films and the theatre. Beaton was born on 14 January 1904 in Hampstead, the son of Ernest Walter Hardy Beaton, a prosperous timber merchant, his wife, Esther "Etty" Sisson, his grandfather, Walter Hardy Beaton, had founded the family business of "Beaton Brothers Timber Merchants and Agents", his father followed into the business. Ernest Beaton was an amateur actor and met his wife, Cecil's mother Esther, when playing the lead in a play, she was the daughter of a Cumbrian blacksmith named Joseph Sisson and had come to London to visit her married sister. Ernest and Etty Beaton had four children – Cecil. Cecil Beaton was educated at Heath Mount School and St Cyprian's School, where his artistic talent was recognised. Both Cyril Connolly and Henry Longhurst report in their autobiographies being overwhelmed by the beauty of Beaton's singing at the St Cyprian's school concerts.
When Beaton was growing up his nanny had a Kodak 3A Camera, a popular model, renowned for being an ideal piece of equipment to learn on. Beaton's nanny began developing film, he would get his sisters and mother to sit for him. When he was sufficiently proficient, he would send the photos off to London society magazines writing under a pen name and ‘recommending’ the work of Beaton. Beaton attended Harrow School, despite having little or no interest in academia, moved on to St John's College and studied history and architecture. Beaton continued his photography, through his university contacts managed to get a portrait depicting the Duchess of Malfi published in Vogue, it was George "Dadie" Rylands – "a out-of-focus snapshot of him as Webster's Duchess of Malfi standing in the sub-aqueous light outside the men's lavatory of the ADC Theatre at Cambridge." Beaton left Cambridge without a degree in 1925. After a short time in the family timber business, he worked with a cement merchant in Holborn.
This resulted in ` an orgy of photography at weekends'. Under the patronage of Osbert Sitwell he put on his first exhibition in the Cooling London, it caused. Believing that he would meet with greater success on the other side of the Atlantic, he left for New York and built up a reputation there. By the time he left, he had "a contract with Condé Nast Publications to take photographs for them for several thousand pounds a year for several years to come."From 1930 to 1945, Beaton leased Ashcombe House in Wiltshire, where he entertained many notable figures. In 1947, he bought Reddish House, set in 2.5 acres of gardens 5 miles to the east in Broad Chalke. Here he transformed the interior, adding rooms on the eastern side, extending the parlour southwards, introducing many new fittings. Greta Garbo was a visitor, he is buried in the churchyard. Beaton designed book jackets, costumes for charity matinees, learning the craft of photography at the studio of Paul Tanqueray, until Vogue took him on in 1927.
He set up his own studio, one of his earliest clients and best friends was Stephen Tennant. Beaton's photographs of Tennant and his circle are considered some of the best representations of the Bright Young People of the twenties and thirties. Beaton's first camera was a Kodak 3A folding camera. Over the course of his career, he employed both large format cameras, smaller Rolleiflex cameras. Beaton was never known as a skilled technical photographer, instead focused on staging a compelling model or scene and looking for the perfect shutter-release moment, he was a photographer for the British edition of Vogue in 1931 when George Hoyningen-Huene, photographer for the French Vogue travelled to England with his new friend Horst. Horst himself would begin to work for French Vogue in November of that year; the exchange and cross pollination of ideas between this collegial circle of artists across the Channel and the Atlantic gave rise to the look of style and sophistication for which the 1930s are known.
Beaton is known for his fashion photographs and society portraits. He worked as a staff photographer for Vanity Fair and Vogue in addition to photographing celebrities in Hollywood. In 1938, he inserted some tiny-but-still-legible anti-Semitic phrases into American Vogue at the side of an illustration about New York society; the issue was recalled and reprinted, Beaton was fired. Beaton returned to England, he became a leading war photographer, best known for his images of the damage done by the German Blitz. His style sharpened and his range broadened, Beaton's career was restored by the war. Beaton photographed the Royal Family for official publication. Queen Elizabeth The Queen Mother was his favourite royal sitter, he once pocketed her scented hankie as a keepsake from a successful shoot. Beaton took the famous wedding pictures of the Duchess of Windsor. During the Second World War, Beaton was first posted to the Ministry of Information and given the task of rec
A pixie cut is a short hairstyle short on the back and sides of the head and longer on the top and short bangs. It is a variant of a crop. Pixie cuts were popularized first in the 1950s when Audrey Hepburn wore the style in her debut film Roman Holiday, in the 1960s by actress Mia Farrow. British supermodel Twiggy even by Laugh-In star Goldie Hawn. Jean Seberg sported a pixie cut for Otto Preminger's Bonjour Tristesse and Jean-Luc Godard’s Breathless; the crop became fashionable again in the late 1970s and 1980s, with one of its most notable wearers being the actress Jacqueline Pearce in the British TV series Blake's 7. The crop was big in the mid 1990s, Halle Berry appeared in the 2002 James Bond film Die Another Day wearing a crop. In 2010, Cate Blanchett and Hayden Panettiere sported cropped hair. Depending on the style, pixies range from as short as a half inch in some places to two or three inches long in others.

Andy Warhol was an American artist and producer, a leading figure in the visual art movement known as pop art. His works explore the relationship between artistic expression, celebrity culture, advertising that flourished by the 1960s, span a variety of media, including painting, photography and sculpture; some of his best known works include the silkscreen paintings Campbell's Soup Cans and Marilyn Diptych, the experimental film Chelsea Girls, the multimedia events known as the Exploding Plastic Inevitable. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Warhol pursued a successful career as a commercial illustrator. After exhibiting his work in several galleries in the late 1950s, he began to receive recognition as an influential and controversial artist, his New York studio, The Factory, became a well-known gathering place that brought together distinguished intellectuals, drag queens, Bohemian street people, Hollywood celebrities, wealthy patrons. He promoted a collection of personalities known as Warhol superstars, is credited with coining the used expression "15 minutes of fame."
In the late 1960s, he managed and produced the experimental rock band The Velvet Underground and founded Interview magazine. He authored numerous books, including The Philosophy of Andy Popism: The Warhol Sixties, he lived as a gay man before the gay liberation movement. After gallbladder surgery, Warhol died of cardiac arrhythmia in February 1987 at the age of 58. Warhol has been the subject of numerous retrospective exhibitions and feature and documentary films; the Andy Warhol Museum in his native city of Pittsburgh, which holds an extensive permanent collection of art and archives, is the largest museum in the United States dedicated to a single artist. Many of his creations are collectible and valuable; the highest price paid for a Warhol painting is US$105 million for a 1963 canvas titled Silver Car Crash. A 2009 article in The Economist described Warhol as the "bellwether of the art market". Warhol was born on August 1928, in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, he was the fourth child of Ondrej Warhola and Julia, whose first child was born in their homeland and died before their move to the U.
S. His parents were working-class Lemko emigrants from Austria-Hungary. Warhol's father emigrated to the United States in 1914, his mother joined him in 1921, after the death of Warhol's grandparents. Warhol's father worked in a coal mine; the family lived at 55 Beelen Street and at 3252 Dawson Street in the Oakland neighborhood of Pittsburgh. The family was attended St. John Chrysostom Byzantine Catholic Church. Andy Warhol had two older brothers—Pavol, the oldest, was born before the family emigrated. Pavol's son, James Warhola, became a successful children's book illustrator. In third grade, Warhol had Sydenham's chorea, the nervous system disease that causes involuntary movements of the extremities, believed to be a complication of scarlet fever which causes skin pigmentation blotchiness. At times when he was confined to bed, he drew, listened to the radio and collected pictures of movie stars around his bed. Warhol described this period as important in the development of his personality, skill-set and preferences.
When Warhol was 13, his father died in an accident. As a teenager, Warhol graduated from Schenley High School in 1945; as a teen, Warhol won a Scholastic Art and Writing Award. After graduating from high school, his intentions were to study art education at the University of Pittsburgh in the hope of becoming an art teacher, but his plans changed and he enrolled in the Carnegie Institute of Technology, now Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, where he studied commercial art. During his time there, Warhol joined the campus Beaux Arts Society, he served as art director of the student art magazine, illustrating a cover in 1948 and a full-page interior illustration in 1949. These are believed to be his first two published artworks. Warhol earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in pictorial design in 1949; that year, he moved to New York City and began a career in magazine illustration and advertising. Warhol's early career was dedicated to commercial and advertising art, where his first commission had been to draw shoes for Glamour magazine in the late 1940s.
In the 1950s, Warhol worked as a designer for shoe manufacturer Israel Miller. American photographer John Coplans recalled, he somehow gave each shoe a temperament of its own, a sort of sly, Toulouse-Lautrec kind of sophistication, but the shape and the style came through and the buckle was always in the right place. The kids in the apartment noticed that the vamps on Andy's shoe drawings kept getting longer and longer but Miller didn't mind. Miller loved them. Warhol's "whimsical" ink drawings of shoe advertisements figured in some of his earliest showings at the Bodley Gallery in New York. Warhol was an early adopter of the silk screen printmaking process as a technique for making paintings. A young Warhol was taught silk screen printmaking techniques by Max Arthur Cohn at his graphic arts business in Manhattan. While working in the shoe industry, Warhol developed his "blotted line" technique, applying ink to paper and blotting the ink while still wet
