In the foyer of The Economist Tower, the Contemporary Art Society presented a series of works by Japanese graphic designer and artist, Kyoko Kagata.

Infinity Wear is a clothing collection made using simple bands of cheap fabric directly from a spool. Kagata presents these paired down garments as an alternative strategy to the extremity of Asian production and consumption. They are both a personal catharsis for her work as a packaging designer, and an attempt to engage critically with the design and production values of mass industry.

There will be a short performance during the reception by musicians wearing the Infinity Wear collection, starting at 18.30.

Kagata graduated from the Jhoshibi Junior College of Art and Design (Tokyo, Japan) in 1993. She has exhibited widely in Japan and Asia.
