EVER had that feeling of not fitting in? You know the one. Youâre standing in a room, surrounded by other people, yet you feel acutely alone and self-aware.
Well, this feeling is exactly what designer Hussein Chalayan relishes and hopes to explain in an exclusive lecture for The School of Life.
In his own words, Chalayan believes, â”the experience of feeling isolated, of not fitting in, creates an urge to explore.”
Indeed, Chalayan defies the social expectation to settle into a distinct style, instead extending fashion into the world of art and philosophy.
This refusal to accept a fixed state; an exploration of multiple identities and selves, is what makes his works simultaneously experimental and challenging.
He is without doubt one of the most exciting designers of this generation.
Join Chalayan for a fascinating exploration of his unique philosophy on 10th February 2013 in Conway Hall.
