Viktor and Rolf

Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists explores Viktor & Rolf’s radical conception of ‘wearable art’. 
Since forming their creative partnership in 1992, Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren have gained critical acclaim for their cerebral and witty approach to couture. 
The exhibition, which coincides with the luxury fashion label’s twenty-fifth anniversary in 2017, explores the elements that make Viktor & Rolf designs unique in the contemporary fashion world.
Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists features some of the Dutch design duo’s most show-stopping and innovative works, drawn from the Viktor & Rolf archive as well as museum collections in the Netherlands. 
 All a bit weird but fascinating!!

They had these specially made dolls to record all their exhibition pieces All dressed in a miniature garment

Children's area ATELIER 
Central to Atelier is the stunning wedding dress Viktor & Rolf created for the royal wedding of HRH Princess Mabel and Prince Friso van Oranje-Nassau in 2004. Inspired by this magnificent bridal gown and the fashion artists’ preference for white, children are invited to construct a fashion accessory using different folding and layering techniques. Afterwards, kids can strike a pose in a diorama setting and have their fashion moment captured in a portrait that can be shared with friends and family.
