Designers without Fashion

What happens when you invite the world’s most renowned avant-garde designers to showcase their talents in an exhibition without letting them show fashion? Art, naturally. And in the case of Bernhard Willhelm something with penises, naturally.

More then 20 designers are part of the DYSFASHIONAL exhibition that is opening on June 24 at Haus der Kulturen der Welt, among them are Raf Simons, Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan, Antonio Marra, Gaspard Yurkievich, Item Idem, Bernhard Willhelm and from Berlin: Kostas Murkudis, Bless and Michael Sontag. It’s practically impossible to beat that line-up. To get a sneak peak of what the artists are showing look after the jump.
