Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A

From 12 March – 10 July 2011, the V&A presented Yohji Yamamoto at the V&A, 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 were included in the display of his work for the first time. Each space took its own meaning within the narrative of the exhibition which explored Yohji Yamamoto’s design world.Exhibition curator Ligaya Salazar documented the evolution of the exhibition and offers an insight into the research, design and installation process.
