Seeing is believing and so it is with this truly fabulous exhibition showcasing the provocative work of these self-proclaimed fashion artists, Viktor & Rolf. The exhibition Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists is a show stopper.
Featuring 40 cutting edge haute couture garments, 22 dolls in miniaturized couture, fabulous archival videos and photographs and more, this is one to sweep you away.
The pair formed their partnership in 1992, approaching fashion design with rebellious attitude and technical brilliance.
There’s much to see and marvel at here so ensure you take time. The Autumn-Winter 2016-2017 Vagabond collection used fabrics from previous collections – tulle, cotton, wool and satin, interwoven and embellished with crystals to create spectacular works.
V&R took looking sharp to a new height with the Cutting Edge Couture ready to wear collection, Spring-Summer 2010.
The Wearable Art couture collection of 2015-2016 demonstrates their genius. Pushing the boundaries in all that they do.
Admire the exhibits but don’t overlook the video presentations in the next studio where ‘wearable art’ realizes the dream.
Go hang it and they did!
While in this space, don’t miss the archival ready to wear collections – each collection is fabulously femine and sensual. We can but dream. Don’t miss it.
