The must see exhibition of the Spring for Fashionista’s and admirers of pure design alike must have been the Hussein Chalayan exhibition at the Design Museum From Fashion and Back.
With futurism being an on-going trend for Autumn/Winter & Spring/Summer alike, we at Scarf World were keen to visit the exhibition for ourselves, and it was every bit as inspiring as we hoped.
Renowned for his innovative use of materials, meticulous pattern cutting, and use of new technology, Chalayan’s clothes are like technically constructed costumes, but his use of fabric and print make them look feminine and wearable.
His designs are experimental and creative with collections inspired by aircraft, architecture, and furniture. His garments go from extreme shapes and materials from dresses in Swarovski crystals, lasers, and flickering LED lights, to wearable soft gathered layers of cotton checks, jerseys, silks and light printed chiffons.
