Hussein Chalayan

February at the design museum see the first comprehensive presentation of designs by the twice named British designer of the year and now creative director of Puma, Hussein Chalayan. The exhibit showcases 15 years of experimental fashion from the designer including work such as; ‘Afterwards’ which explores the theory of ‘wearable, portable architecture’ where furniture literally transforms into wearable garments and Airbourne which sees the use of the latest LED technology in the creation of a dress covered in Swarovski crystals and 15,000 LEDs. These are among the vast collection of work from Chalayan which is impressive and technically astounding. This exhibit is enjoyable for the fashion designer, the architect and offers something for everyone no matter what your creative medium may be. So get down to the Design Museum before the 17 May and see if first hand.
