Synopsis: If mid-1990s British fashion conjurs up images of vicious or tricksy tailoring and sexually-charged power-dressing, Chalayan represents its more gentle, cerebral side. The Turkish-Cypriot-born designer's clothing is highly modern, delicately feminine and about as close to pure as it is possible for fashion to be. --The Independent, London

While most fashion designers seem to focus mainly on glamour, Hussein Chalayan's work is conceptual, often political in nature, and inspired by subjects like science--DNA strands, archaeology, the impending extinction of wildlife--sculpture, technology, and architectural theories. (In one of his most famous collections, chairs and tables were transformed into garments on the runway.) Through his compelling originality, unusual approach to design, beautifully tailored clothing, and innovative use of fabrics, Chalayan has garnered a loyal following of celebrity fans like Madonna, Sofia Coppola, and Bjark. Hussein Chalayan celebrates the designer's 10th anniversary, and is the first in-depth monograph of his work.

About the Author: Born in Nicosia, Cyprus in 1970, Hussein Chalayan is an internationally regarded fashion designer who is renowned for his innovative use of materials, meticulous patter cutting, and progressive attitude to new technology. Selected venues where Chalayan's work has been exhibited include the Institute of Contemporary Arts, London; the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; the Fashion Institute of Technology, New York; the 7th International Istanbul Biennale; the Tate Modern, London; and the Musee de la Mode, Palais du Louvre, Paris. Chalayan was voted British Designer of the Year in 1999 and 2000. He lives and works in London.
