Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A
The V&A is holding an exhibition focusing on the work of enigmatic fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto from 12 March – 10 July 2011.
Yamamoto’s contribution to fashion has been massive with his avant-garde style pushing the boundaries and challenging traditional design processes. The V&A’s exhibition is installation-based, showcasing over 80 women’s and menswear garments.
If you aren’t familiar with his work, take a look online – the Japanese designer uses unusual pattern cutting, all of his fabric come from Japan and best of all his sense of humour comes across in everything he does. His work is characterised by a frequent and clever use of black, a colour which he describes as ‘modest and arrogant at the same time’.
