Fashion in Motion: Yohji Yamamoto

I got to check out the fantastic Fashion In Motion show at the V&A which Jazmine kindly invited me too (thank youuu!). I love the V&A (my absolute favourite museum/gallery ever) and of course, I have a lot of love for the infamous Japanese designer that is Yamamoto!

The Show featured Yamamoto’s SS11 collections which were modeled by real life couples, something that he first explored during his SS99 menswear show. Everyone makes clothing their own and Yamamoto is fascinated by this aspect, stating that he creates 80% of the garment and allows 20% for the wearer to make their own.

I have to admit, I was over the moon seeing his collection showcased in the Raphael galleries at the V&A and seeing the couples have such fun with the outfits. They were all so achingly cool and the whole show was oh SO SWOONWORTHY!

If you follow me on Facebook or Twitter then you’ll know that I’m off to HK today. In fact by the time this post is published, I’ve been on my flight for 3 hours already. It only seems like yesterday when I booked my flight and I’m really looking forward to returning to the urban jungle that is HK for a month. I’ve not been back for 3 years and I’m looking forward to checking out my family’s ‘new’ apartment which is now increasingly closer to the shopping mecca that is Causeway Bay.

Unfortunately, I won’t have a laptop with me. However I won’t leave you hanging as I’ve got a couple of posts lined up so it doesn’t get too cobwebby around here and I’ll be Tweeting, Tumblr-ing and Facebooking when I can too!
