“The spectacular and avant-garde creations of Dutch fashion designers Viktor & Rolf are on display in Australia for the first time in an exhibition organised by the National Gallery of Victoria in close collaboration with the designers.
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.”
I’ve been wanting to meet more of my blog readers for a while. You are so lovely, thoughtful and supportive, and I appreciate the rich discussions you have on my blog, Facebook and Instagram. It’s my birthday in December, there have been big milestones on my socials, and my blog turns 7 too, so what better reason to celebrate?! I asked Facebook if you wanted to meet up for a drink, many of you said yes and so I’m making this happen.
You’re invited to the National Gallery of Victoria (NGV) to see the Viktor and Rolf art and fashion exhibition and then have a drink with me. You don’t have to have an alcoholic drink – a something fizzy or a cup of tea is fine by me! I hope you will form some IRL friendships amongst yourselves too.
Date: Saturday 10 December
Time: 1.15 pm for a 1.30pm start. We will finish at 3.30 pm
Where: National Gallery of Victoria, 180 St Kilda Road Melbourne. Meet in the NGV foyer for exhibition, and then we go for a drink. And probably a cake because I love cake.
