Making Waves

I recently took these shots at the Making Waves exhibition at The Wapping Project. Yohji Yamamoto’s work was stunning!

‘Recently installed in the Boiler House of the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station is Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto’s celebrated and oversized silk wedding dress with bamboo crinoline.

The dress is suspended from metal tanks in the Grade 2 listed (1890) Boiler House’s roof above a huge and bottomless tank of water, where it’s reflected beneath.

Created in collaboration with scenographer and lighting designer Masao Nihei, the installation in Wapping makes up the third element in a series of exhibitions devoted to Yamamoto’s work’

For anyone interested I found this clip on youtube
