Fashion artists Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren are the creative designers of luxury fashion house Viktor & Rolf. From their base in Amsterdam, the designers create spectacular fashion collections that reveal their interests in fantasy and storytelling.
As part of the Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists exhibition, NGV Kids presents Atelier: Viktor&Rolf for Kids, an interactive space designed especially for children and families. Here the fashion designers share their experimental approach to fashion and design through displays, multimedia experiences and hands-on activities.
Central to Atelier is the stunning wedding dress Viktor & Rolf created for the royal wedding of HRH Princess Mabel and Prince Friso van Oranje-Nassau in 2004. Inspired by this magnificent bridal gown and the fashion artists’ preference for white, children are invited to construct a fashion accessory using different folding and layering techniques. Afterwards, kids can strike a pose in a diorama setting and have their fashion moment captured in a portrait that can be shared with friends and family.
Atelier: Viktor&Rolf for Kids gives children insight into the creative phases of the fashion industry, beginning with making in the studio and finishing with the presentation of a collection in a runway show.
