For those of you lucky enough to be in or near London, the Design Museum is holding the first comprehensive presentation of Chalyan’s AMAZING work in the UK. The exhibit runs from Friday Jan 23 till April 24. Spanning fifteen years of experimental projects, the exhibit will include:
‘Afterwords’ which explores the notion of ‘wearable, portable architecture’ in which furniture literally transforms itself into garments;
‘Airborne’ bringing the latest LED technology to fashion design with a spectacular dress consisting of Swarovski crystals and over 15,000 flickering LED lights; and
‘Before Minus Now’ a dress made of materials used in aircraft construction which changes shape by remote control and ‘Readings’ a dress comprising of over 200 moving lasers presenting an extraordinary spectacle of light. If anyone is interested in reviewing the exhibit for Fashioning Tech and sharing your thoughts with the community, please send me an email.
