Future Beauty: 30 Years of Japanese Fashion
Blending street style with high fashion, this is the most-comprehensive collection of avant-garde Japanese fashion in Europe.
The frocks are marginally saner than the often-bizarre creations synonymous with London Fashion Week, although there are some close contenders, such as Hiroaki Ohya’s origami dress – not ideal for a rainy autumn day – as well as some unusual lampshade-meets-tea-towel hats.
