FabUK interviewed A young Japanese talented Hair Artist Ryuta Tomono
I had “ATLANTIS MYTHOLOGY” created this collection from September to December last year. The legend of Atlantis, which moved my heart when I was a little boy, is the inspirational material. I particularly believed in TIMAEUS, Plato. The beautiful empire in the Atlantic. The beautiful island loved by the gods but sank thousands of years ago and has not yet been found. It is the Atlantis myth that expresses that ephemeral and fantastic story in hair design.
The collection of these four pieces is a product of my imagination. The costumes were provided by great fashion designer , Anna Choi, who is young gifted Japanese designer.
When I was a little boy, I always remembered to read the Atlantis myth. A dancer, ruler, a cathedral, and a castle were vaguely hung in my mind. I could easily imagine sort of them. (Because there was no pics) Finally, I started as a hair designer last year and created not only images but also every story that I had imagined since childhood. For example, if you are a dancer, you’re on the stage alone. If it is a cathedral, it expresses the feeling of decay in hair over a long period of time.
At any rate, I made my work thoroughly until I was satisfied with costumes, make up and modelling, as well as hair arts. The shooting was very impressive. When the model finished styling was standing in the studio and the shutter began, I returned to the six-year-old boy. The story of Atlantis became a reality in the picture.
