Central Saint Martins graduate Hussein Chalayan started his eponymous ready-to-wear label in 1994 after his degree collection was bought by British retailer Browns. Now based in Paris, the Cyprus-born designer’s contemporary brand is a favorite of celebrities, tastemakers and fashion editors around the world for its forward thinking, avant-garde collections. Influenced by popular culture, modern art and world events, Chalayan’s work breaks down conventions and challenges everyday perceptions of fashion. Constructed using unexpected materials and innovative techniques, Chalayan collections have featured everything from the unusual – inflatable skirts, LED lights and upholstery from fighter-plane seats – to the elegant – sharp tailoring, cool digital prints and structured silhouettes.
