Yohji Yamamoto (born 1943) is one of the most prominent fashion designers of the last 30 years. His Wooden dress represents his orthodox experimental fashion vision.

Designed as a sculptural piece as a part of the Autumn/Winter 1991/1992 collection, this wooden waistcoat and skirt in one is more architecture than fashion design. The artwork represents radical experimental thinking of the 1980s and 1990s Japanese fashion scene.
