    ^ you're welcome softgrey


    from the catalogue for the exhibition, Not in Fashion: Fashion and Photography in the 90s

    "I wasn't going to force them to recreate a fashion show from the 90’s, or hang Helmut Lang's reflective trousers in the exhibition space. The garments would be completely reduced to artifacts or craft items. My challenge was to find a format that didn’t bring clothes into the space. Fashion is about the moment and how can you remove them from their context and reality. " - Sophie von Olfers, the curator

    yes he produced the collection for SS1995 and did the runway presetation too.
    sort of plastic season. you saw nylon and polyester most heavily used ever.
    pics have been posted in this thread. if you're interested.
    also it was one of the critical turning points. between FW1994 and SS1995 there was change and difference in production and stratesy and direction. it was the start of the onward (onward kashiyama) era ( which ended with the start of the prada era). maybe what he did was most widely magnetic around there in his career.

    Helmut, and behind him talking on the phone is Kostas Murkudis. Loved their collaboration as well as the later Melanie Ward years.
