So you think that her success (in terms of producing all of the wildly innovative and exciting collections that she has made for over 30 years) is entirely down to others? Paul Harnden is a suberb craftstman no doubt, but he's not creative at all. There's nothing innovative about what he does. Comme des garcons would have used his expertise in making jackets, but would not have obtained any creative vision from him. Watanabe is her protege - she hasn't relied on him at all!! It's much more theother way round, as Junya would readily admit (and has in any interviews I've read with him).
