Eiko Ishioka - Costume Designer
source: wikipedia

Quote:
Eiko Ishioka (石岡 瑛子 Ishioka Eiko, born July 12, 1939, Tokyo) is an Oscar-winning costume designer, known for her work in stage, screen, advertising, and print media. She won a 1992 Academy Award for costume design for Bram Stoker's Dracula.

Ishioka’s long list of credits includes the 1985 Cannes Film Festival Award for Artistic Contribution for her production design of Paul Schrader’s film Mishima, a Tony Award nomination for the stage and costume design of the Broadway play "M. Butterfly," and a Grammy Award for the art work for Miles Davis’ "Tutu" album, to name just a few. Most recently, she brought her creative sensibilities to bear on the conservative opera world with her costume design for Richard Wagner’s "Ring Cycle," at the Netherlands National Opera. Also recently, she joined the creative team of a musical adaptation of the Spider-Man comics.

Eiko Ishioka graduated from the Tokyo National University of Fine Arts and Music. Her work is included in the permanent collection of museums throughout the world, including the Museum of Modern Art in New York. In 1992 she was selected to be a member of the New York Art Directors Club Hall of Fame.

One of Eiko's most famous works are the costumes for Cirque du Soleil: Varekai.

She also directed the music video for Björk's Cocoon in 2002.

Ishioka was the costume designer for the Beijing-2008 Olympics.

Eiko was discovered by Tsuji Masuda who created Parco Ikebukuro from the ailing Marubutsu Department Store. When Parco did well and expanded to a Shibuya location in 1973, Eiko designed Parco Shibuya's first 15 second commercial for the grand opening with "a tall, thin black woman, dressed in a black bikini, dancing with a very small man in a Santa Claus outfit." She became deeply involved in Parco's image. Her last Parco campaign involved Faye Dunaway as "face of Parco" wearing black, on a black chair against a black wall, and peeling and eating an egg in one minute as "a film for Parco."

I also have Tarsem's The Fall in my DVD collection, so I will probably making screen captures of that movie later!

I know that Eiko Ishioka has also collaborated with Issey Miyake on projects (don't have any more details on that), but more recently, she has designed costumes for Grace Jones's Hurricane Tour!

So sad... there's really no other costume designer like her.

The dwarves' costumes in Mirror Mirror remind me of an extension of Tom Waits's one-piece outfit in Dracula.
