Viktor and Rolf exhibition

Yesterday Laura, one of my sisters and I went to the Viktor and Rolf exhibtion in Utrecht. I don't think I have ever enjoyed an exhibtion this much! Unbelievable how two young men working together can express their creativity in such an impressive way!

Viktor and Rolf included many themes in their exhibtion, which they had used in earlier fashion shows. My favorite theme was Russian doll (fall/winter 1999-2000), of which the final step in shown in this picture. Underneath this cape there are nine other dresses, just like a matrioshka. Their show concept for this fourth couture collection was very original, using only one model.

This was Laura's favorite 'dress' from the 'Bedtime Story' theme (fall/winter 2005-2006). The doll (and in the show, the model) actually has two lovely pink silk cushions in her neck!

Look at all these lovely ribbons in different sizes and the colors ...

Another dress from the 'Bedtime story'.

The 'Silver' theme.
There were even details underneath the skirt. The picture didn't turn out right, since we weren't allowed to use our flash light.

If anyone here in Holland still has time this week to visit the exhibition, you should really go (until 8 February). It is definitely worth it. When walking back to the train, I wasn't even intrested in the Quiltshop we passed and to which I only get to go once in the two or three years ...

Can you explain a little for men, are they making these dresses as fashion dresses or just for the exhibition?
