Conceptual Cutting

Hussien Chalayan is not one for the average runway show and this season was no different. One model was chosen to wear the whole collection and in a short film at the end the model merges into the robot dress which as been remoted controlled to move across the stage.

Shows from Chalayan have mostly been an art form rather than the commercial show of his collection as is traditional for the seasons. Hopefully most will see the precision and skill that is incorporated into the pieces. With a retrospective in Paris happening in June his creativity will be able to be admired by many more than just those lucky enough to get a show ticket.
