Fashion Artists: World of Arts

Widely recognized and respected for its provocative Haute Couture and conceptual glamour, the house of Viktor&Rolf aspires to create spectacular beauty and unexpected elegance through an unconventional approach to fashion.

Staging signature collections for over twenty years during Paris Fashion Week – ever since the first Haute Couture collection in Spring/Summer 1998 – Viktor&Rolf creations evoke a provocative spirit infused with surreal contrasts. Throughout their career, Viktor&Rolf have been identified by their radical conception, pushing the boundaries between art and fashion.

Dutch fashion designers Viktor&Rolf are highly connected to the world of arts and they have participated in numerous exhibitions from prestigious museums across the globe such us 'The Metropolitan Museum of Art', 'Barbican Art Gallery', 'Kyoto Costume Institute', 'Musée de la Mode et du Textile' and the 'National Gallery of Victoria', amongst others. On the occasion of the twenty-fifth anniversary of the fashion house of Viktor&Rolf, the Kunsthal Museum in Rotterdam organized an exhibition in collaboration with the Dutch designers and Canadian curator Thierry-Maxime Loriot. The exhibition ‘Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists 25 Years’ shows the elements that make their designs unique in the contemporary fashion world.
