The key book on the British-Cypriot fashion designer Hussein Chalayan. Chalayan is celebrated for his modern, ground-breaking designs and his use of technical materials and concepts. Each of Chalayan's collections from 1995 to 2010 are discussed and illustrated with runway shots, photographs and sketches. The off-kilter printing is a design conceit and not a printing error.
