The Space Collection


What images come to mind when you think of the word “fashion”? While a quick Google image search will give you sketches of ball gowns, female models and high heels, Merriam-Webster will give you the much less tangible definition of: “the make or form of something.” Surprisingly, renowned fashion designer KYE is challenging this preconception of fashion. Known for her visually appealing garments and interesting project topics such as “revitalizing youth” and "youth unemployment,” she’s dressed the likes of G-Dragon, 2NE1 and 4 Minute—just to name a few in the K-pop scene. This time around, at her first solo exhibition, you can expect to see everything but clothing. “The Space Collection” will present several objects, films and installation pieces that show what fashion can be without using clothing. The installation pieces, which are in large rooms that will play with the idea of form by using light, are attracting the most buzz right now. Separately, patterns created by the light’s shadows and spaces have been printed onto fabric and are used as installation objects. When dressing for the exhibition, perhaps one should keep in mind the words of style icon Coco Chanel: “Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas…” and worry more about which thoughts and questions you’re bringing, as opposed to which shoes to wear.
