Takafumi Tsuruta: Eliminating Borders through Fashion
Takafumi Tsuruta is all about designing fashion that is stylish, functional and fun for everyone, transcending all boundaries. He made a splash in 2015 when he became the first designer in Japan to feature runway models with disabilities. A wheelchair user, for instance, modeled a pair of pants with no seams in the back to prevent rubbing and chafing, and easily accessible funky knee pockets. He talks about his dream of creating a diverse society with zero prejudice through inclusive fashion.
