I visited this exhibition on Saturday at the Victoria and Albert Museum in South Kensington which was fascinating.

Yohji Yamamoto was born in Tokyo in 1943 and studied fashion only after he completed his law degree. He became internationally renowned in the early 80s for challenging the traditional notions of fashion. 

 

 

There was both womenswear and menswear garments on display. By viewing these pieces in such close proximity one can see what masterpieces they are - utter perfection from every stitch and thread. He sculptures his designs so that each pleat or drape falls in such a way that it makes as though the garment is floating. It was spectacular to see such a wonderful exhibition from a master of fashion. A true artist. 

 

The exhibition is on until 10 July 2011
