Exhibition - 30 Years of Japanese Fashion

I was recommended to see this exhibition at the Barbican, and have to say it didn't dissapoint. There was loads to look at, up close as well. It was mainly Rei, Yohji and Issey which felt slightly fanatical, they could have had more Kenzo maybe, but what they did have was really good. The photographs by Naoya Hatekeyama showed each garment flat, which helped get your head around the famously innovative pattern cutting of the Japanese designs.
