Designer of the Day…Hussein Chalayan

To me fashion is art. Art made with fabric (or sometimes not even that!) and the human body. That is what I was thinking about when I choose Hussein Chalayan for the designer of the day. This man has an amazing way of using art, fashion, and technology to create extremely unique and awe-inspiring garments. I mean look at “Bubble Dress” above. If that isn’t crazy amazing, then I don’t know what is. He’s also done art installations and exhibits pertaining to fashion, art, life, and culture.  Feast your eyes on more uniqueness from Chalayan:

Some RTW from Chalayan:

I want to leave you with a video of Chalayan’s work in motion. Literally….(the fun begins around the 2 min mark)

See what I’m talking about!? Cool.
