‘Technology allows you to create..’ Hussein Chalayan
As soon as you see Hussein Chalayan’s work, you know, this man is innovating fashion. In the Autumn/Winter show in the year 2000 he set his stage up like a sitting room. It consisted of four chairs, a table, a flat screen television, several vases and pots. In the finale four models approached the set of chairs, removed the covers and put them on. The chair covers turned into dresses. The last model stepped inside the table, lifted it up, and it transformed into a wooden skirt.
Chalayan, a British-Turkish Cypriot fashion designer, always tries to reinvent in his work. He loves working with the newest technologies.
