Biennale fashion

The woman in the picture above is this year's Venice Architecture Biennale director and Pritzker winner, architect Kazuyo Sejima presenting the Golden Lions awards ceremony on August 28th in a skirt from Comme des Garçons’s Autumn/Winter 2010 collection.

That one in the middle:

This isn't the first time Rei Kawakubo's and Kazuyo Sejima's paths meet. Last year Sejima designed an installation at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Tokyo to display selected Comme des Garçons dresses from the Kyoto Costume Institute collection.
