Avant-garde silver screen offering

Fashionistas are in for a real treat with a new fashion documentary on its way…

Thirty years after his Paris debut, Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto never seizes to amaze with his cutting edge fashion, unconventional techniques and trademark oversized silhouettes feature drapery in varying textures.

 

This year also marks Yamamoto’s ten-year anniversary of his Y-3 line for Adidas and his retrospective at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum will be on show till July 10. Director Theo Stanley’s new documentary, This is my Dream, follows him from Tokyo to New York during the creation process of the Y-3 spring/summer 2010 collection. The 30-minute film gives rare insight into the Japanese designer’s thoughts, such as: “I was born in Tokyo, after bombs. So maybe this is my root, a ruined Tokyo. This dark side of the life is attractive for me, forever, from the beginning.”
