Statement of Accessibility

May 25th, 2019

Issey Miyake USA continues its commitment to providing a website accessible to the largest possible audience, regardless of technology or ability. In order to further this commitment, Issey Miyake USA staff contracted an independent third-party (Creating Digital, LLC) for an accessibility audit and review according to Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0 level AA guidelines.

On April 17, 2019, Creating Digital, LLC concluded its manual review of the Issey Miyake USA website and digital properties, consisting of the following pages located at the attached URLs:

Due to Issey Miyake USA’s integration with external vendors, areas within the site remain beyond Issey Miyake USA’s control. These elements include (but are not limited to):

  • Digital Catalogue
  • Concept Video and Other Videos Embedded from third party platforms.
  • Press Releases
  • Facebook Pixel (Retargeting)
  • Google Analytics (Event Tracking)

Until the integration with these external vendors is resolved, Issey Miyake USA can only achieve a partial level of conformance according to WCAG.

Creating Digital, LLC has concluded its accessibility audit and has provided the results to Issey Miyake USA. Issey Miyake USA is actively working to increase the accessibility and usability of the website and in doing so adheres to many of the available standards and guidelines.

Issey Miyake USA does not discriminate in its education and employment programs on the basis of religion, age, race, color, national origin, gender, marital or parental status, or disability and complies with Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964, Title IX Education Amendments of 1972, Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) of 1990.

In order to further our commitment to nondiscrimination, we are continuing to work on the website in order to ensure the site conforms to level Double-A World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 2.0. Such guidelines detail best practices for ensuring assistive technology users can access the site. The guidelines also make the site more user friendly for all people.
