MIYAKE MOVES: There are corporate changes afoot at Issey Miyake in Tokyo. Nobuyuki Ota, who has been president of the house for about 10 years, is stepping down at the end of June. A successor will be named at a press conference. “I believe that it is the time to give my seat to the next generation in order to keep the company more active,” Ota said. “I don’t want to keep the top position of any organization more than 10 years.” Ota said he will stay on at Miyake as a special adviser for at least a few months and will keep working for Japan Fashion Week as a board member.
