Hussein Chalayan Exhibition

A definite date for the diary this September is a solo exhibition from British designer Hussein Chalayan at the Lisson Gallery (Sept 08-Oct 02, 2010). A truly inspiring designer in a sea of typical catwalk looks; Chalayan pushes boundaries and his avant garde pieces could never be seen as clothes for the sake of clothes, they are always vehicles for his challenging and interesting concepts. An exhibition at an art gallery is perfect for Chalayan whose catwalk shows are often more reminiscent of art installations.

They combine incredible artistic concepts with amazing technological ideas and result in one-of-a-kind pieces that would be much more at home in an exhibition space than ever on the high street. Highlights from the designer’s prolific career include the wooden skirt which transforms into a coffee table from his A/W 2000 collection.

Also his spring 2007 bubble dress comprised of lots of plastic bubbles roughly resembling a mini-dress recently copied by Lady GaGa on her Fame Ball tour.

We can’t wait to see what the designer has up his sleeve for this gallery show.
