About Takahashi Hiroko
Takahashi Hiroko is an artist based in Sumida, Tokyo whose work innovates the Japanese kimono tradition. Characterized by patterns consisting of the basic elements that make up the universe – circles and straight lines - Takahashi’s work shows the infinite possibilities that can be created out of finiteness. She aims to bring about a fusion of art and fashion through her original brand, HIROCOLEDGE. In 2020, a kimono from Takahashi Hiroko’s brand HIROCOLEDGE was featured in ‘Kimono: Kyoto to Catwalk’ at the Victoria and Albert Museum, Europe’s first major exhibition dedicated to kimono.
