Kei Kagami is a Japanese designer born in 1965. In 1989, he finished the Alfaitaria course at Bunka Fashion University in Tokyo and moves to London in search of the well-known designer John Galiano, who recognizes his taleto and becomes his mentor . Later she holds a master's degree in Fashion from Central St. Martin's College of Art & Design. His initial formation in architecture and the passage through the atelier of the architect Kenzo Tange, indelibly defined his creations that seem to be drawn from post-apocalyptic scenarios.
The aesthetic of his clothes extends to the footwear that is characterized by being dark and sown with mechanical, architectural and surrealistic notes. In 1998, Kei Kagami started an important partnership with YKK and two years later began to present its collections in the fashion weeks of London, Milan and Paris.
Kei Kagami is a jury in important international fashion contests and has participated, as a trainer, in initiatives in the most prestigious European educational institutions. Since 2015 he is curator of the YKK Showroom in London, a showcase for the presentation of emerging shoe designers. Kei Kagami presented his creations at exhibitions from Tokyo to New York, having already held several retrospective exhibitions. The exhibition at the Museu do Calçado presents, for the first time in Portugal, the very particular universe of this inescapable creator of contemporary fashion.
