Carol Lim and Humberto Leon on Kenzo Takada
In an op-ed for Business of Fashion, former Kenzo co-creative directors Carol Lim and Humberto Leon discuss the positive impact Kenzo Takada made on their lives as designers and creatives wanting to break into fashion. "He was really the first Asian designer," they write. "He was the first in so many categories, but the first Asian designer to take on Paris and create a brand and a house and a new language for fashion. When we arrived in Paris, there was a lot of scepticism about us. Kenzo is such a beloved and historical Parisian brand. We had to remind people of his beginnings and ensure we would bring our Asianess to the label. He was our inspiration as a person because he had done it. He was an example for us and countless others." {Business of Fashion
