Yojhi Yamamoto's inspiring exhibition at the Victoria and Albert museum in London gives visitors a chance to see the retrospective work of the fashion designer first hand. The designs give a unique twist on everyday clothes, with asymmetrical shapes, beautifully crafted folds and hand stitched details. The exhibition also features catalogues of his work with fashion photographers such as Nick Knight, Paolo Roversi and Craig McDean. The mannequins all give pointers to the themes in Yamamomotos work such as layering, length and his attention to material.
