As an ex fashion student I was pretty excited to see Jonathan Anderson's curated exhibition at The Hepworth, 'Disobedient Bodies'. (One of my projects at college was to create a piece of clothing with exaggerated forms to distort the body and emphasise different areas. It was fascinating to see some of my inspirations from that project with my own eyes, like the weird (but amazing) structures from Rei Kawakubo and pieces from Issey Miyakes' 'Pleats Please' collection. My 17 year old self would have liked this very much.)
I really really liked the screen printed pants from Richard Tuttle, and the whole felt collection by Comme des Garcons made me swoon! I love the 2D structures and the wacky colour choices, they remind me of something from a comic book.
