YOHJI YAMAMOTO at V&A
Victoria and Albert, one of the most beloved museums in London is holding yet again another legend. There will be an exhibition that explores the work of the ground breaking designer for whom fabric is everything and that is what intrigues him about design. This retrospective in V&A, with various installations throughout the V&A and beyond, for the first time includes Yamamoto’s menswear . The exhibition holds 80 pieces of work including multi media timeline of his work. Ligaya Salazar, the curator of the exhibition, documents the evolution of the designs from the beginning to the end. The exhibition will be in Victoria and Albert from 12 March – 10 July 2011 and for sure a must-see for fashion industry. This is his first major solo show in the UK and is an installation-based retrospective showcasing over 80 women’s and menswear garments, which are most representative of his work. And as a part of this project, Yamamoto’s work stretches further across London with satellite installations at the Wapping Project sites: Yohji’s women at Wapping Bankside from 12 March to 14 May which is a photographic exhibition of key photographers who have worked with Yohji Yamamoto and Yohji making waves at Wapping Project in the same dates that shows a surprising and beautiful garment installation.
