Akira Toyama

Japanese-born designer Akira Toyama took her collection inspiration from Pink Cliffs in regional Victoria, where the stone cliffs are indeed pink, and a visit here left lasting memories. Now living in Australia, Toyama also finds inspiration in her Japanese heritage, using Kimono silhouettes and techniques to craft her pieces. It is this unique combination of Australian landscapes and Japanese culture which is at the core of Toyama’s design practice.
