Fashion in Motion: Eley Kishimoto

March 2003

Fashion in Motion is a series of live catwalk events presented at the V&A. Featuring some of the greatest designers of our time, Fashion in Motion brings catwalk couture to a wider audience by modelling it against the beautiful backdrop of the Museum.

A retrospective from the highly acclaimed design duo Eley Kishimoto. Celebrating ten years in the fashion and textile industries, Mark Eley and Wakako Kishimoto presented an inspiring array of garments from their past and current collections.

Their fashion collections sit happily alongside their interior range of furniture, wallpaper, ceramic and glass and both incorporate the bold and colourful graphic prints and patterns for which they have become synonymous.

Their garments are epitomised by simple shapes which have taken on softer lines in recent seasons and are especially popular in the UK, Japan and the US. Their effortless combination of interior design and fashion is reminiscent of the holisitic approach adopted by designers during the Art Deco period.
