Rei Kawakubo

Founder, Dover Street Market

Known for her innovative and brave design choices as founder of Comme des Garçons, Rei Kawakubo has created just as many waves with her Dover Street Market store in London’s Mayfair.

Opened in 2004, the shop and its stock has become an inspiration for the industry and is arguably London’s answer to European super-indie Paris’s Colette or Milan’s 10 Corso Como.

2009 has seen innovative installations such as a unique space to house Phoebe Philo’s debut collection for French fashion house Celine.
