PechaKucha Presentation

From Land Comes Design

PRESENTED ON OCT 19, 2018
IN TOKYO @ VOL 160

“Matohu” is a women’s clothing brand based in Omotesando. However, the brand does just not represent clothing. This time we will take a peek into Hiroyuki and Makiko’s beautiful works, and how they bring Japanese culture and history into fashion and design.

表参道に直営店を構える『まとふ』。ブランド名のように、日本らしさを"まとう"ような、繊細で美しい作品の紹介とともに、デザインを固有の文化や歴史から学び、ファッションの世界に展開する方法を語ってもらいます。

Creativity in a Hidden Land

BY SARA FIDA
@ VOL 134 ON MAR 18, 2016

“We’re advanced in everything but when it comes to design, we’re a bit boring… So when PechaKucha was introduced in 2012, young people were encouraged to come… and show us what they had.”

In Creativity in a Hidden Land from PKN Tokyo’s Vol. 134 Pow Wow Special, PechaKucha Night Muscat Organizer Sara Fida Al Abdullah shares some reflections on her home city and the PKN she hosts there in Oman. A beautiful and vibrant city, Oman's capital Muscat is a sight to behold indeed, but as Sara began to recognize an under-represented and under-valued sense of design, she committed her to finding and spotlight the city's hidden creativity and talent, and if in doing so via PechaKucha Nights, she's had an enormously positive impact on her community. Here she also offers some ingenious tips on running PechaKucha Night, from which any organizer can glean. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, April 4th, 2016.
