This is another book worth reading for all those interested in cutting edge fashion pieces. The Cutting Edge provides  insights into the birth of the innovative fashion industry in Japan. It is essential reading for textile makers, designers; students of fashion, design and visual arts and anyone interested in contemporary Japanese culture.
