Roar Talent’s Yuima Nakazato was commissioned by the Black Eyed Peas to create the 2010 US Tour costumes and dress Fergie in styles inspired by his Graduate collection which featured transformable garments that could animate into three-dimentional structures.
It has been a very colourful and rewarding journey for the Royal Academy of Fine Arts (Antwerp) graduate who has won several awards to honour his craftmanship. These include ITS#7′s VERTICE Award, ITS#8 YKK Award, BVBA32 Award for Innovation and twice winner of the COCCODRILLO Shoe Award. His shoes were also selected as a permanent collection for ModeMuseum of Antwerp.
We are noticing many of the Roar Talent designers go on to produce special projects for Celebrities, Music videos and promotional collaborations so we are always thrilled to see the results.
The future is definitely bright for Yuima!
