An inspirational soul.

I really enjoyed this interview with Yohji Yamamoto, about his solo exhibition at the V&A last year.  I was so sad I couldn't make it to London for the show.

This interview is an incredibly interesting view into the life of a designer who I much admire and who rarely gives such long interviews.  It offers a great insight into his life's work. A self confessed 'fashion hater', I find much inspiration in his approach to an unsustainable industry which focuses on constant change and constant disposal of that which is not worn out.

A gentle and ambitious soul and master in my mind Yohji Yamamoto offers me constant inspiration through his dedication to perfecting the dying art of making, through fashion.
