Throughout her career fashion designer Rei Kawakubo has pioneered conceptual and creative working methods. A collection might start with a crumpled wad of paper or an abstract phrase, and result in garments that ignore function, play with scale and proportion, or offer multiple possibilities for use.

Considering four key runway collections by Comme des Garçons that deconstruct our expectation of fashion, NGV curator Danielle Whitfield leads a highlight tour of Collecting Comme.
