Kenzo is a Japanese fashion house founded by the designer Kenzo Takada. The future designer’s love to fashion occurred due to his love to his sister fashion magazines. However, he started to attend the University of Kobe, not following his dream. But later he abandoned the studies and entered Bunka Fashion College. After ending the college he moved in Paris as to promote his talent. First Kenzo hadn’t enough resources to create his collections, and only fabrics that he could afford were flee market clothes ripped for fabrics. This fact gave the designer an unusual style that comprised different prints and textures. Finally, this extraordinary design attracted attention of the public and in 1970 his first signature women’s collection was shown at the Vivienne Gallery. This collection gained success as one of his models appeared on the cover of Elle magazine. In the next year the designer has opened his first store. In 1972 he won the Fashion Editor Club of Japan’s prize. Kenzo Takada always is provocative and dramatic. In 1978 he proved it once again: his fashion shows were held in a circus tent, and were finished with horsewomen performers wearing transparent uniforms and he himself riding an elephant.

Nowadays Kenzo fashion house is owned by the French luxury goods company LVMH, comprising as well such companies as Louis Vuitton, Donna Karan, Marc Jacobs, Givenchy, and others.

The products designed, manufactured, and sold by the Kenzo company include: Ready-to-wear clothing for women, men, and kids; leather goods, accessories, perfumes, shoes and home interiors.
