Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons is one of the most visionary and influential fashion designers working today.

Since the late 1970s, her intent has always been ‘to make clothes that didn’t exist before’ and she has consistently defied convention to redefine fashion.

Season after season, Kawakubo’s designs have ‘deconstructed’ garment shape and function, reframed ideas of beauty, and proposed a new relationship between body and dress.

Collecting Comme examines the radical concepts and design methods that have informed Kawakubo’s practice since 1981, the year she first presented in Paris.

This is a free Auslan tour.
