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.

Osman Yousefzada, rising star of the international fashion scene, was the focus of the V&A’s May 2010 Fashion in Motion. For one unique day in May, the designer will present a selection of pieces from his collections to date in a series of catwalk shows at the V&A’s Raphael Gallery.

Born in the UK to Afghan parents, Osman Yousefzada was inspired from an early age by his mother’s Birmingham dress making business, which influenced him to study Fashion Design at Central Saint Martins in London. The V&A has been a long-standing source of inspiration for the designer who was nominated for Designer of the Year in 2007.

Alongside the Fashion in Motion shows, contemporary dancers showcased the extraordinary way in which Osman’s designs move on the human form.
