I have just returned from a few enjoyable days in Melbourne getting my big city fix and catching up with friends and my youngest son. A highlight for me was the opportunity to visit the National Gallery of Victoria
for the Viktor and Rolf exhibition.
The exhibition is titled Viktor & Rolf: Fashion Artists and this perfectly describes their radical conception
of wearable art.The garments on display feature some of their most show-stopping and distinctive works.
This is titled “Performance of Sculptures” haute couture collection spring-summer 2016.
Bedtime Story, Autumn -Winter 2005. This is one of the 21 dolls , all made by a Belgian doll maker , that
wear intricately crafted miniature versions of each major collection.
For obvious reasons this one is titled Cutting Edge, interesting concept not so sure this one is wearable art.
One of my favourites , titled Vagabond, the combination of fabrics and colours was really quite something.
Russian Dolls, eight different garments that were worn simultaneously by a model , just like a Russian doll.
Fashion as Art , worn as a garment on the catwalk then removed and placed on the wall just like a painting.
Fashion as art it was and I am so pleased to have had the opportunity to view this exhibition and admire
the creativity of these talented designers.
Graphic black and white with coloured necklace and bangle paired a black crop leather jacket and Moyuru
pants seemed right for the gallery.
