0 BALLOON DRESSES BY RIE HOSAKAI AND TAKASHI KAWADA

Daisy Balloon is Japanese balloon artist Rie Hosokai (born 1976) and art director/graphic designer Takashi Kawada (born 1976). Making the world their stage, this balloon unit travels the globe to exhibit their art.  Using the world as their stage, the duo travel the globe to show-off their art.


The elaborate dresses are made from the inflated material to create striking haute couture with an unlikely fabric. The latest fashion piece was constructed as part of 'piece for peace' - a charity art exhibition at parco gallery in tokyo until the 9th of january, 2013 - in conjunction with a lego dress hosokai made of a similar style. The work was produced through a custom type 'knitting' of white balloons to gradually build a fragile,
but wearable frock, immaculately captured through the art direction of hosokai's partner takashi kawada.
