Yohji Turns Director

One of my favorite fashion designer, Yohji Yamamoto is following in the footsteps of Tom Ford and creating his first feature film. The designer, who will direct the project, has already commissioned a scriptwriter and plans to have the film completed in the next two years.

Although Yamamoto appeared as the subject of fashion documentary This Is My Dream, which was released last year, his directorial debut will not focus on himself. The designer also added that he doesn’t like creating film costumes.

“I don’t want to kill the characters of the actors and actresses with my ego,” Yamamoto toldWWD. “Costume designers have to know which fashions and which trends were running at which time, so their knowledge of past clothing is sometimes better than ours.” That’s very humble of you, Master Yohji!
