Hussein Chalayan, an intriguing vision of the future

Hussein Chalayan, from fashion and back, is the retrospective exhibition currently held at the Design Museum of London presenting Chalayan's visionary work created between 1994 and 2009.



The Cyprus-born fashion designer's oeuvres are inspired by disciplines not associated with fashion such as genetics or anthropology, and by an innovative use of materials, meticulous pattern cutting and a progressive attitude to new technology.
