Skin+Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture

Embankment Galleries - 24 April - 10 August 2008


We all live in buildings and wear clothes. Traditionally, fashion and architecture have remained quite distinct. In recent years, however, the two disciplines have become closer than ever before.

Since the 1980s, these two worlds have increasingly shared intriguing connections. Sharing materials, design methods and fabrication has inspired radical developments.

Discover how over 50 internationally-renowned architects and designers including Alexander McQueen, Vivienne Westwood, Comme des Garcons, Yohji Yamamoto, Future Systems, Frank Gehry and Zaha Hadid 'fashion' buildings and 'construct' garments.

Specially selected new exhibits for London include work by Boudicca, Eley Kishimoto, Martin Margiela and Hussein Chalayan.

The exhibition was designed for Somerset House by architect Eva Jiricna and features over 200 works including iconic garments, 3D architectural models and film footage.

After huge success in Los Angeles and Tokyo, Somerset House brings this exhibition to Europe to open the new riverside Embankment Galleries.

Tickets can be purchased on the day from the Embankment Galleries admission desk.

Skin+Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture
is organised by The Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles.
