Hussein Chalayan

I saw this exhibition of Hussein Chalayan’s fashions at the Design Museum. Not only are his clothes very attractive and wearable but he concerns himself with interesting ideas such as genetics, displacement and cultural identity so it made a fascinating exhibition. The exhibition also included a number of runway shows which were interesting to see although they should have been broken down into smaller units and shown with the clothes to which they related. His mechanical dresses that morph from one form to another are very clever as is his range of wearable portable architecture.
