Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists

The Dutch design duo is well known for its provocative designs, which cross the frontier between fashion and contemporary art most of the time. As such, it shouldn’t come as a surprise that their creations are the main subject of an exposition taking place at The National Gallery of Victoria in Melbourne. The exhibit includes over 35 couture pieces from the creative duo, as well as some of their earlier designs – taken straight from their archives. Developed in collaboration with Thierry-Maxime Loriot (the guy behind the acclaimed Jean Paul Gaultier exposition) this exhibit promises to give us an insider’s look into Viktor & Rolf’s colourful universe.
