by

Last Sunday, I took a train to Rotterdam to visit the “Viktor & Rolf: fashion artist 25 years” exhibit at the Kunsthal. This exhibit is ongoing, the closing date is 30 September. During this period, the documentairy “Viktor & Rolf: Because We’re Worth It” is viewable online. Here are some pictures of my favorite works:

Bedtime Story Collection, ready-to-wear fall/winter 2005 – 2006

This is the same dress as above, but miniaturised and shown on a doll made specifically for this exhibit, that looks exactly like the model who originally wore this dress during the fashion show. Throughout the exhibit, there were several of these dolls, and no, I didn’t steal any of them. I wanted to, though.

Russian Doll Collection, haute couture fall/winter 1999 – 2000. All the clothes seen here, were worn by model Maggie Rizer simultaneously. For anyone curious as to what that looks like, here is a 16 minute video of the complete fashion show.
