Kazuko Kurosawa

This is Costume Designer Kazuko Kurosawa. I met her whilst in Tokyo, she is the daughter of Akira Kurosawa.
Kazuko designed one of my favourite films, Zatoichi, it was a great pleasure to meet her. She offered us her help in dealing with the Tokyo costume houses and textile shops. Her experience will be invaluable I am sure and being an avid flea market goer and vintage textile collector, she offered to keep her eyes peeled on behalf of our production.
I would have liked to interview her properly but it felt like a bit of a liberty to take advantage of our interpreter for selfish purposes. I'll keep in touch and try to do it another time.
