hussein chalayan

Fashion designer Hussein Chalayan is known as the philosopher of the British fashion world. Originally born and brought up in Cyprus, he studied fashion at Saint Martins School of Art and graduated in 1993. Since then he has dazzled the fashion world internationally with his shows and more recently with exhibitions of his work.

This year (for the second year running) he became the British Designer of the Year (at the British Fashion Awards) and is currently working on projects in collaboration with dancer Michael Clark, architect Zaha Hadid and making costumes for the opera, Handels' Messiah in New York. Through December he will exhibit his latest commission - Airmail Clothing 1999 - at the Musee de l' Union Centrale des Arts Decorative (Palais Du Louvre) in Paris.
