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.
A collection of nearly 200 shoes from the Vivienne Westwood archive are to be showcased at Selfridges in London.
The luxury department store is hosting the world’s first shoe exhibition of the iconic designer.
The collection, called Vivienne Westwood Shoes: An Exhibition 1973-2010, will display the designer’s signature styles throughout her incredible presence in fashion over the last four decades.
