Akira Toyama

A short artist profile for Japanese textile designer Akira Toyama who is currently based in Melbourne, AUS – showcasing her techniques and process in the lead up to a photoshoot to document a new garment for her portfolio. Filmed on location at Papirica Restaurant, Toast Workroom and in the streets of Fitzroy over several months.

This film was a very special personal project – traded for a one of a kind jacket.
