Victoria and Albert Museum presents Yohji Yamamoto exhibit
From 12 March - 10 July 2011, the V&A will present a retrospective of the work of visionary Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto. Yamamoto is a visionary designer who has made a vital contribution to fashion, challenging traditional norms of clothing with his avant-garde style.
This is his first major solo show in the UK and is an installation-based retrospective showcasing over 80 women's and menswear garments, which are most representative of his work during the last 30 years.
In addition to Yamamoto’s clothing designs, the exhibit also displays movies featuring excerpts from his fashion shows, films, and some of the key collaborations he’s been involved in. The exhibition itself was designed by his long-time collaborator Masao Nihei.
