THE OTHER WEDDING DRESS: While the world waits to see the wedding dress — the royal one — make its debut on April 29, they can feast their eyes on another white wonder set to go on show in London this spring. On March 12 — Yohji Yamamoto’s giant white silk wedding gown with bamboo crinoline will go on display in the cavernous Boiler House of the Wapping Hydraulic Power Station, as part of a three-pronged tribute to the Japanese designer in London. The dress, from the autumn 1998 season, will fall from big metal tanks that make up the roof of the Boiler House, and will look as if it is descending into a bottomless tank of water. Visitors will be able to inspect the dress from a small wooden boat, rowed to the center of the space by a boatman. The exhibition will run until May 14, alongside “Yohji’s Women,” which features work by photographers including Nick Knight, Peter Lindbergh and Paolo Roversi, which has also been curated by The Wapping Project. Meanwhile, a major retrospective of the designer’s work will take place at the Victoria and Albert Museum from March 12 to July 10.
