Hussein At 15

Creative designer for Puma, Hussein Chalayan is marking 15 years in fashion with a solo exhibition held at London's Design Museum . This will give him the oppurtunity to reflect on his large body of eclectic works that have included themes in cultural identity, displacement and migration. So go and check out the twice named 'British Designer of the Year', and show your support.

"Exhibits will include ‘Afterwords’ which explores the notion of ‘wearable, portable architecture’ in which furniture literally transforms itself into garments; ‘Airborne’ bringing the latest LED technology to fashion design with a spectacular dress consisting of Swarovski crystals and over 15,000 flickering LED lights; ‘Before Minus Now’ a dress made of materials used in aircraft construction which changes shape by remote control and ‘Readings’ a dress comprising of over 200 moving lasers presenting an extraordinary spectacle of light."

Open until 10pm Friday 23 January and Friday 24 April. Find out more about the museum's late night openings

The event is sponsered by Puma
