Featuring prominent works ‘Heel-Less Shoes’, and ‘Lady Pointe’ shoes from the series designed especially for Lady Gaga. The intricately and beautifully-produced leather by Noritaka showcases a reflection of contemporary Japanese craftsmanship, fusing traditional elements in a modern context of art, fashion and design making him one of the most relevant and exciting contemporary designer-artists today.
