Issey Miyake, a Japanese fashion designer, has died.

Issey Miyake, a well-known avant-garde fashion designer and innovator, died in a Tokyo hospital at the age of 84. Miyake rose to prominence in the 1970s, and his work has been defined by technology-driven designs, bold, colorful styles, and origami-like pleats, which earned him the title 'Prince of Pleats'.


In 1970, the visionary designer established the Miyake Design Studio, which went on to create a number of fashion lines as well as fragrances. Miles Davis and Grace Jones have both worn Miyake's designs, and he was responsible for Apple founder Steve Jobs' signature turtleneck sweaters. Despite his formal retirement from fashion in 1997, he continued to oversee the creative direction of his company's fashion lines.


According to a statement issued by the Issey Miyake Studio and Issey Miyake Group, there will be no funeral or memorial service as per Miyake's wishes. Below are some tributes to the late designer.
