Victoria and Albert Museum Celebrates the Life and Work of Yohji Yamamoto


LONDON.- This spring the V&A opened the first UK solo exhibition celebrating the life and work of Yohji Yamamoto, one of the world’s most influential and enigmatic fashion designers. This installation-based retrospective, taking place 30 years after his Paris debut, features over 80 garments spanning Yamamoto’s career. The exhibition explores the work of a designer who has challenged, provoked and inspired the fashion world. Yamamoto’s visionary designs are exhibited on mannequins amongst the treasures of the V&A. Placed in hidden corners of the Museum, the silhouettes creates a direct dialogue between Yamamoto’s work and the different spaces in which they are displayed. Items are found on the British Galleries Landing, in the Norfolk House Music Room and looking out onto the John Madejski Garden from an alcove in the Hintze Sculpture Galleries. Other pieces are sited in the Paintings Gallery, amongst the museum&#
