Fashion and architecture

Skin + Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture is back with a new installation, venue and different designers. The exhibition that will open in April 2008 will feature Vivienne Westwood, Alexander Mcqueen and Hussein Chalayan among other designers and will focus on the visual and conceptual similarities between fashion and architecture since the 80s. The architecture fraternity will be represented by Frank Gehry, Zaha Hadid, David Adjaye and Thomas Heatherwick. The installation has been designed by some of the most edgy designers such as Boudicca, Comme des Garcon, Martin Margiela, Victor & Rolf, Yohji Yamamoto and Junya Watanabe.

It’s intersting to note that some of the most famous fashion designers originally trained as architects such as the late Gianfranco Ferre and former Gucci creative head Tom Ford. Last year the exhibition ran at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Los Angeles.

The exhibition will run from April 24 to August 10 2008 at Somerset House, Strand, London. For more information visit www.somersethouse.org
