    So I'm not sure if Mulletproof is going to post this today, but she told me about it --Perhaps I'll just post it for her lol


    YOHJI YAMAMOTO AT THE V&A
    From 12 March - 10 July 2011, the V&A will present a retrospective of the work of visionary Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto. Conceived as a site-specific installation with its core in Gallery 38 and small interventions throughout the V&A, Yamamoto’s menswear collections will be included in the display of his work for the first time. Each space will take its own meaning within the narrative of the exhibition which explores Yohji Yamamoto’s design world.
    Follow exhibition curator, Ligaya Salazar, as she documents the evolution of the exhibition and offers an insight into the research, design and installation process.

    This is the blog to follow

    ^ me too!

    Thanks for sharing that video, MMA :heart:.. what a fascinating person, every pause he makes seems like such an intricate search for a group of words to fully express himself.. it's that sincerity and modesty and the serenity in which he carries that what doesn't cease to awe me and grow deep admiration for him.. he's such a poet.. and he doesn't even try!. Listening to him in person must be quite an amazing experience.
