Tues 12th July : Emily Beard reports from Paris: Hussein Chalayan at Musees des Arts Decoratifs, Paris
'Fashion Narratives' is a new exhibition which chronicles Chalayan's career of 17 years. Visitors are greeted with a piece from his highly acclaimed graduate collection (a semi-decomposed dress), which sets the tone for the exhibition. Chalayan's impressive body of work is presented through a variety of mediums, with a generous amount of collection pieces, fashion film collaborations and archive catwalk footage.
All these elements come together in highlighting Chalayan's consistently thoughtful and innovative process.
'Fashion Narratives' will be at the Musees des Arts Decoratifs until 13 November 2011.
