Photography has always played an integral role in the triumph of the fashion world, with magazines like Vogue and Harper's Bazaar being just a few of the fashion content hubs. These types of publications featured editorials and advertisements and showed off the latest and greatest designs on some of the most iconic models, with the designs of Japanese designer Issey Miyake being no exception. Miyake's early work started showing up in advertisements and editorials featured in a lot of these fashion publications in the early 1970’s. He's worked with a long roster of extremely talented photographers, each of whom helped him visualize his designs and created some of the most famous posters, advertisements, and editorials.
