The exhibition hosted work from visionaries such as Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakuba and Yohji Yamamoto, With two Levels to this exhibition, it explores the characteristics which have come to define fashion from Japan.
The exhibition was divided into different sections with semi-sheer white fabric; There was much fashion and art to see but it was a little dissapointing not to be able to take photographs however I had managed to snap up a few of my favourites before being told.
I really like the cream embellished dress with deconstructed tailoring, if i remember correctly, I think it was the works of Issey Miyaki.
