Skin+Bones: Parallel Practices in Fashion and Architecture

24 April - 10 August 2008
Embankment Galleries

Discover the synergies between fashion and architecture from the 1980s to the present day. The exhibition explored 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.

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

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