In the 48 years that Rei Kawakubo has captivated the fashion world with her brand Comme des Garçons, the designer has found a way to consistently challenge the fashion status-quo. Her collections—which explore a variety of themes, from “Biker Ballerina” to “Body Meets Dress, Dress Meets Body”—serve the same function: to push fashion, and our understanding of the human form, forward.

When tracking Kawakubo’s runway shows, one can see the evolution of CDG, from very simple deconstructed silhouettes to the wild architectural wares (and the grand runway spectacles that accompany them) produced today.

By surveying images from CDG's past, it becomes abundantly clear that the brand's collections are consistently different from everything else in fashion. However, what's most striking is Kawakubo's steadfast loyalty to her own vision. No two collections are the same, yet they are all quintessentially Comme des Garçons.

Click through the slideshow, above, to see for yourself how CDG has evolved since the mid-80s.
