Hussein Chalayan: Fashion loves themes — but can anyone think of a designer who has tackled the evolution of humanity? It would seem that no concept is too big for Hussein Chalayan, he of the esoteric tricks, from dresses that double as chairs to disappearing mechanical gowns.

Nice, approachable fare with a modern allure.
