For information about Eley Kishimoto visit their website at From a partnership forged in the early 90’s, Eley Kishimoto quickly gained a reputation for incisive and intelligent print design with their craftmanship gracing the world’s catwalks via work with Louis Vuitton, Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen, Alber Elbaz and Jil Sander, to name but a few. In the mid 90’s the partnership moved into the fashion world with the launch of their first womenswear collection; this proved to be such a success that the company has continued to produce their own Eley Kishimoto line ever since.
