Shiro, originally from Japan is a costume designer who is focusing on the collaboration. It is an important source in terms of creating his costume designs and expanding creative abilities.
His concept is to produce an unrealistic space by making avant-garde costume constructed from creative forms, volumes and textures using fabric, artificial and natural materials. Its concept is also inspired by the visual work, which costume designer Eiko Ishioka created in films. For example, in Dracula (1992) directed by Francis Ford Coppola and The cell (2000), which is a scientific and psychological fiction by Tarsem Singh, Eiko Ishioka produced impressive spatial effects by creating eccentric costume. It implies that eccentric costume also could lead to a contribution in films.
Hence, Shiro would focus on creating unique costumes, which fit with perceptual experiences such as films. Particularly, he would emphasize forms and textures in order to represent symbolic costumes in well visualization.
