Filipinos will have the rare opportunity to view a modern Japanese costume exhibit and workshop by Heterophonic Dada’s Chie Ono and Satoko Shidahara from February 15 to 22 at SM Aura Premier, in cooperation with Sinag Arts.
The event has two exciting components: an exhibit of the duo’s award winning works of art at the Atrium (February 15 to 21); and a Washi Paper Costume Designing Workshop (February 21 to 22) at the Samsung Hall. This will culminate in a fashion show by workshop participants on February 22.
Heterophonic Dada is a body décor unit formed by two women, Chie Ono, a costume artist and Satoko Shidahara, a hair and make-up artist in January 2011.
Chie Ono learned costume designing in the Kyoto Seian College of Art. While in school, she won the Grand Prix in the Japan Designers Club Fashion Design Competition in 2003. Since that time, she has had a broad range of activities as a costume artist—in theater, dance, and hair and make-up shows.
Satoko Shidahara started her career as a free -lance hair and make-up artist after her graduation in Kansai in 2003.
She’s now very active in creating beautiful costumes using mixed media bridal make-up, and takes part in making costume designs for the theater and the opera, and styling for beauty magazines.
As a team, they recreate each person totally from head to toe in what can be considered a work of contemporary art. They have a broad body of work—in stages, events, films, advertisements, lecturing, and others.
They were awarded as the Best in Costume and Best in Booth Exhibition during the World Costume Festival in Vigan City in 2013. The festival as attended by foreign and local costume designers, as well as the representatives of the International Organization of Scenographers and Theater Designers.
