Its bizarre how the most important people on movie industry cant get very popular,i know you are confused right now.I dont mean Actors ,Actress,Directors or Producers. I am a good fun of movies ,i would watch plenty of them in a day ,especially on a Sunday ,many people watch movies to the end but many never pay attention on the Credits..Credits ..credits..i will be bored and not satisfied if i don't get to see the credits.
For those that had a chance to watch movies like Immortals (2011) ,Bram Stoker's Dracula(1992),Mirror Mirror(2012),The Fall (2006) and read the credits very well am sure you came across this name Eiko Ishioka (my her soul rest in peace) she is among the strongest and creative women i have always admired .Couple of times i ask my lads if they know this powerful name in the Art industry but non had the idea.I found it funny how people who spice up movies don't get very popular like the actors.
She also directed the music video for Björk's "Cocoon" in 2002, and designed costumes for the "Hurricane" tour of singer Grace Jones in 2009.
Ishioka was the costume designer for the Beijing-2008 Olympics.
In addition to her Oscar-winning work on Bram Stoker's Dracula, Ishioka has designed costumes for all of Tarsem Singh's films, including The Cell.
Eiko was discovered by Tsuji Masuda who created Parco Ikebukuro from the ailing Marubutsu Department Store. When Parco did well and expanded to a Shibuya location in 1973, Eiko designed Parco Shibuya's first 15 second commercial for the grand opening with "a tall, thin black woman, dressed in a black bikini, dancing with a very small man in a Santa Claus outfit." She became deeply involved in Parco's image. Her last Parco campaign involved Faye Dunaway as "face of Parco" wearing black, on a black chair against a black wall, and peeling and eating an egg in one minute as "a film for Parco."
