The Modernists View

Fashion Designer, Fiona Buckingham, established the Kyotap label in 2002

The Modernists View


June 4th, 2008

Fiona’s designs, like the acronym suggests, are versatile – they are often reversible or can be worn in an endless combination of styles and ways. Influenced by urban architectural form and eastern approaches to cloth, Fiona’s designs reflect her own appreciation of traditional eastern lines and abstract, futuristic forms. She consistently challenges traditional garment construction by experimenting with structure, flow and form and using, for example, only one seam line and allowing the body itself to shape a garment.


Kyotap Sydney boutique is located at 21 Mary Street, Surry Hills, NSW, Australia 2010
