Electric Japan 2022: Kei Kagami Engineering Couture
(This is a past event and is no longer running)
We are honoured to present a series of exhibitions by famed Japanese fashion designer, tailor and architect, Kei Kagami. His work incorporates an eclectic mix of fabrics and improbable materials to create pieces that are functional, playful and conceptual.
Throughout May Kagami will take over The Coronet, installing a selection of works throughout the theatre. Works include Zip Dress (2011), a dress made with YKK luminous vision zippers and UV light, in our foyer and his mixed media sculpture Stairway to Heaven (2017) in our candlelit bar.
Kagami will be taking up residency in the Print Room studio throughout June exhibiting his iconic work, Water Dress (2009) along with a selection of his engineered couture outfits. These works showcase the multidisciplinary skills and conceptual designs which have cemented his place among fashion’s most innovative.
