Akira Isogawa is one of Australia's most celebrated fashion designers. He has achieved international recognition for his exquisite contemporary designs, which are sought after in every major fashion capital throughout the world.
Designer Rugs first collaborated with Akira in 2005 to create a limited edition range. This beautiful collection captures Akira’s evocative patterns and colour combinations, and have emerged as true classics of Australian design.
Following on from the success of the first collection, Akira’s second rug collection ‘Kisetsu’ was launched during Fashion Week 2007. The 'Kisetsu' collection reflects Akira's delicate signature, epitomised by contemporary plays on traditional Japanese icons, patterns and colours.
Akira’s third dynamic rug collection 'Hirameki' launched in July 2012. In this Akira’s striking creations referenced his catwalk collections. Akira’s love of exploring the juxtaposition between his traditional Japanese heritage and the celebration of Australia’s love of colour, translated into some exquisite pieces.
The dynamic synergy between Designer Rugs’ expertise and Akira’s trademark breathtaking yet understated designs, has been actualised in all three collaborations.
