Description/Abstract

Dream Shop represents the final in a trilogy of exhibitions about the acclaimed Japanese fashion designer Yohji Yamamoto, which also included exhibitions at the Pitti Immagine Foundation in Florence and the Musee de la Mode et du Textile in Paris last year. Each instalment presented an entirely different approach to understanding and celebrating Yamamoto’s work with this final exhibition arguably the most experimental retrospective of the three. Taking Yamamoto’s challenging fashions as its cue, Dream Shop is designed to challenge three fundamental “taboos” of the fashion exhibition: the need for low lighting to preserve fragile fabrics in historic dress collections, the ban against touching objects on display and the viewer’s position as an observer outside the garments on display rather than the body inside the garments on display.
