Here is a bit of background info about Comme des Garcons from the Vintage Fashion Guild.

Comme des Garcons is the company founded by Rei Kawakubo. Kawakubo was born in Toyko, Japan in 1942.  In 1969 she began working as a stylist, and formed Comme des Garcons.

She began designing in 1973, and her first show was in Tokyo in 1975. The next year she opened her first shop. She became internationally prominent in 1981, after a startling show in Paris in which she featured garments that were randomly wrinkled, hemmed, seamed and ruched.

Comme des Garcons has an established reputation for the avant garde, often using unusual and complex cutting.

A bit more info about Junya Watanabe, he was born in Fukushima, Japan in 1961.  In 1984 he apprenticed at Comme des Garcons as a patternmaker. In 1993 he began his own line under the Comme des Garcons name which is called Junya Watanabe Comme des Garcons.
