Rei Kawakubo, founder and designer of Comme des Garçons, broke the norms of fashion with her radical deigns and excessive use of the color black. While not everyone at the time was ready for Rei Kawakubo’s unprecedented way of approaching fashion, throughout the years she established herself as an irreplaceable figure in the fashion world.
