Hussein Chalayan – Shoreditch Town Hall

I went down to Shoreditch Town Hall last wednesday night for a talk about creativity in London. Hussein Chalayan was part of a panel of creative experts who reflected on how London has impacted their work and them as individuals.

The talk was really interesting as it talked about London being a platform for creativity by attracting designers and artisans from all over the world.

The second half allowed the audience to poise questions to the panel, the majority were for Chalayan and about the inspiration behind his 2007 collection. He said the collection was inspired by 111 years of fashion and reflects a political atmosphere influenced dress code. By morphing clothing together it mechanically changes the complexity and language of the clothing.
