<< Taking inspiration from Elizabeth Wilson’s 2007 essay ‘A Note on Glamour’, The Circle brought together work by designers including Alexander McQueen, Ann Demeulemeester, Dior Homme, Lanvin, Maison Martin Margiela, Rick Owens and Vivienne Westwood. By choosing to address appearance and apparition through visual codes of reflection and lustre, curator Jeff Horsley revisited the occult associations of glamour’s ancient Celtic roots.

<< In the words of Yohji Yamamoto, museums are where fashion goes to die. For Yohji Yamamoto Showspace, curator Jeff Horsley chose to display over 60 pieces by Yamamoto on both mannequins and live models. This contemporary interpretation of a couture salon was both a reminder of clothing’s natural connection to the moving body and a commentary on the unfortunate inertia of traditional archive culture.

<< RED Commes des Garçons was curated by exhibition maker Jeffrey Horsley in tribute to Commes des Garçons’ renowned radicalism. Taking inspiration from a statement in Rei Kawakubo’s Mood 2001 presentation, Horsley opted to eliminate all natural light from the exhibition space to create an uncompromising, provocative setting to display pieces spanning 20 years of the brand’s history.
