Barbican celebrates 30 years of Japanese fashion


The work of Japan's most famous fashion designers is being celebrated in a major exhibition at the Barbican gallery in London.

Their designs made an enormous impact on the world fashion scene in the late 20th century.

The event called Future Beauty: 30 years of Japanese fashion looks at how the work of designers such as Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo and Yohji Yamamoto redefined the very basis of fashion.
