If what drives a product towards extravagance and opulence is pure talent and multitude of hard work, then these two fashion artists seem to have what it takes to do just that. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren recently unveiled the world-premiere exhibition of their latest fashion artwork title Viktor & Rolf : Fashion Artists at NGV International Melbourne.
如果驱使一项产品迈向富丽奢华境地是纯粹的天赋和辛勤工作，那么Viktor Horsting和Rolf Snoeren这两名时尚设计师似乎就是当仁不让。他们最近也在为主题Viktor & Rolf时尚艺术家在墨尔本维多利亚国家美术馆国际馆(NGVInternational)的世界首次展览会揭开序幕，展示最新时尚作品。
Driving the haute couture designs from Dutch fashion house, these artists present some of the most flamboyantly sculptured creation inspired by Picasso and cubism. Featuring over 40 intricate and hand-crafted haute couture garments, the premiere will include exhibit from a dress made from a silk bedspread, to gowns made from gold-gilded picture frames.
The exhibit will highlight intricate floral dresses with skirts spanning nearly two meters inspired by the much admired Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh. You will definitely not miss the one of its kind dress fixed with nearly 250 bows Princess Mabel of the Netherland’s royal wedding dress. Focusing the theme on the Old Master paintings, the event will also include masterly designs made from gold-framed of Classic paintings. What may be a quirky idea, instead of real life-sized models, there will also be Dutch porcelain dolls dressed in miniature couture on display.
