gabriyolly / Masaki YAMASAKI ＋ Maya SHIBUYA
Maya Shibuya, a textiles lecturer at Bunka Fashion College, and Masaki Yamazaki, a graphic designer and representative of hiyocostudio, created the “gabriyolly” brand in 2014.
The brand brings together Maya’s research on the dying techniques and Masaki’s various textile pattern designs. gabriyolly uses textile graphics as the origin of its inspiration to create works in various media across clothing, graphic design, video, aromas, food and music. The aim is to create a stimulating, multi-sensory experience. Together, Maya and Masaki are trying to push the boundaries of textile design with the hope that those who get to experience their artwork will be surprised by its fresh, unexpected elements.
