"Fabric is Everything" - Yohji Yamamoto
An absolute must-see for anyone passing by London via South Kensington during the next months, July 22 to be exact. The Yohji Yamamoto Exhibition at the Victoria & Albert Museum boasts over 80 original pieces displayed on white mannequins giving a thorough insight into the work of this exceptional designer, who actually only took up his studies at the Bunka fashion college, Tokyo after finishing a law degree in order to work alongside his mother, a seamstress. Additionally, you will find lots of interactive elements in the multi-media timeline accompanying the designs on display and ranging from interviews with his professor at Bunka over fashion show videos (make sure you check out Madness dancing in the Menswear AW04/05 show) to a Wim Wenders documentary and amazing collection catalogues shot by the likes of Paolo Roversi or Inez and Vinoodh.
For more details, making of, and peeks behind the scenes, you should check out the curator's blog.
