Katsuya Kamo, one of Japan’s leading hair stylist and make-up artist, is having an amazing solo exhibition at Laforet Museum (Laforet 6F).
Over 100 headpieces that were created for high-end fashion shows are displayed in the gallery, along with a replica of his atelier and visuals of fashion shows.
Kamo started his career as a fashion designer but decided to get into makeup/hair after a friend showed him the hairdressing work in a Salon.
Kamo has designed and created stunning headpieces for brands like Chanel, Fendi, Junya Watanabe (from Comme Des Garcons), Maison Martin Margiela, Undercover and Mintdesigns among other brands. His fantasy head pieces have also been featured in photo shoots for Vogue Paris, Vogue Italia, Dazed & Confused, and Wallpaper*
More a sculptor than a hair designer, Kamo’s collection for Chanel Spring 2009 was entirely created out of paper. Simply beautiful.
Fantastic feathers for Watanabe Spring collection 2012.
Fashion shows displayed on the gallery’s wall.
The entrance to the gallery modeled after the front entrance of Kamo’s house.
