MOVING ON: Toshikazu Iwaya, the former designer of hot Tokyo fashion label DressCamp, will debut his new brand, Iwaya for Dress 33, during the Paris shows in September. Nobuyuki Nakama, a former Moschino Japan president, is Iwaya’s new business partner. The two expect the brand to reach 2 billion yen, or $18.5 million, in sales sometime over the next three years and to open a freestanding store in Japan and a string of shop-in-shops. Iwaya, a graduate of Bunka Fashion College, put DressCamp, an ostentatious brand known for its bold prints and colors, on the Tokyo map before he left the label earlier this year. Iwaya said his spring debut for the new brand will draw on “Baroque” influences. The designer will also stage a show in Tokyo in October with some additional looks not shown in Paris.
