Helmut Lang left the world of fashion in 2005 to focus on art projects
An international fashion designer has donated a collection of his work to Bath's Fashion Museum.
Helmut Lang has given 25 pieces - from 1997 to 2005 - to the Bath and North East Somerset Council-run venue.
The ensembles will be on display from 1 May 2010 until the end of the year.
The display includes fashions from his Spring/Summer and Autumn/Winter collections, including sheer layered dresses for the women and Lang's signature suit for the men.
Fashion Museum manager Rosemary Harden said: "This is such an exciting day for the Fashion Museum.
"The influence that Austrian-born fashion designer Helmut Lang has had on fashion in the last three decades is undeniable.
"His simple, elegant and urban clothing has been a quiet and yet powerful thread running through the development of fashion since the 1980s.
"He is undoubtedly one of the great names of modern fashion, and we are so excited therefore that his work should be part of the collection and on display at the Fashion Museum in Bath."
