To anyone who is not just interested in fashion but textiles and construction stop what your doing now go onto the barbican art galleries website and book your tickets because this exhibition is amazing. I FINALLY went to see it this evening and wished i had seen it earlier, it was way better than I thought it would been. The exhibition was filled with amazing garments from designers like issey miyake and yohji yamamoto dating back from the 80’s until now. These designers truly revolutionised fashion as we knew it and turned it into art manipulating and draping fabrics in ways unimaginable. accompanying the exhibition was a performance called soul dance performed by artist Ana K and a sake ceremony which was basically a free taster of Japanese wine. photos weren’t allowed but i managed to get these 2 cheeky shots.

I had so much fun at graduate fashion week, it was so inspirational to see the designers of tomorrow today. I picked up a ton of prospectus so had a lot to look through. There’s alot of talent out there.
I particularly liked a dress that was created using multiple manipulated fabric textiles with loads of little textile ornaments through out it.
Check out the pics ❤
P.s i really need to invest in a digital camera
I’m currently doing a really good project at college where you basically chose an image of someone that you like the look of and design a collection for them, super flexible. Love it. I’ve chosen this indie oriental chick completely random so I’m going to this exhibition being held at the Barbican for some research into Japanese fashion. Its being run from 15 October 2010 – 6 February 2011 and tickets are £8 on-line, £10 on the door or Concs £7 online and £8 on the door. Not to sure what day im going yet but when i know you’ll know.
