Subject: Hussein Chalayan
Venue: London’s Design Museum
Dates: 21 January – 17 May 2009
This “designer” in the truest sense of the word is being lauded in what should be a must do destination for anyone serious about "fashion meets design". In his 15 year career, Chalayan has collaborated across disciplines with musicians, anthropologists, industrial designers, DNA experts, jewellers and textile designers.
He once buried several of his designs in his back garden and then later dug them up to see what effect the earth and minerals had had on them. We can only be in awe of his authenticity of practice.
