Hussein Chalayan is an internationally regarded fashion designer who is renowned for his innovative use of materials, meticulous pattern cutting and progressive attitude to new technology. Twice voted British Designer of the Year (in 1999 and 2000), Chalayan is a designer who pushes clothes to the point where they become sculpture, furniture or even architecture. While most fashion design seems to be obsessed with glamour, Chalayan's work is conceptual and political. Inspired by architectural theories, science and technology, he famously produced a collection which included chairs and tables that became garments. This book is the first in-depth monograph on his work, celebrating Chalayan's tenth anniversary in fashion. It does not simply document the highlights from ten years of fashion design, but also includes his installations and video projects.
