Natsuki Hanyu is a Textile Monster based in London and Tokyo. The monster is a storyteller sharing a sense of value through a spiritual atmosphere without relying on language.

Hanyu: ‘I previously studied fashion at Joshibi University in Japan. Since I have a background in fashion, my deep interest in the body remains unchanged, and all of my spiritual works are made for a body. Body-movements animate my textiles, and my poetic textile has the power to redefine the beauty of the body. These ambiguous full-body costumes are designed to resonate with the movement of the wearer, and I use performance to explore the interactive relationship between body, movement and environment.’
