so .. always forgetting how huge the barbican centre is i wandered around for a good half hour trying to find the stairs... wandered straight into a graduation.. and got lost once more within the crowds of adoring family members... pretty sure i made it into some of their pictures looking very confused and slightly panicked!

finally finding the stairs... without having to ask for directions although i'm sure it would of been a lot quicker.. i made my way up to the 3rd floor, where all was calm. the exhibition room, all tall ceilings white walls and sheer fabric pieces (that were very similar to the blinds hanging in my bedroom!) hung to screen off each part of the wonderful maze and create a soft clean background to showcase the beauty of these japanese fashions..

displaying japanese avant-garde fashion from the 1980's to now, the exhibition houses visionaries such as issey miyake, rei kawakubo and yohji yamamoto as well as works by the next generations including junya watanabe, jun yakahashi, tao kurihara and mint designs, all of whom challenge the established western notions of beauty and fashion and whose radical concepts continue to defy convention... please to excuse my dodgy sneaky snaps below... this exhibition is so so so worth a visit!! see all info below :] x

made entirely of wadding.. i want one!
