Avant-garde fashion house Viktor&Rolf will be holding an exhibition of their haute couture, early designs and works in progress at the National Gallery of Victoria from 21 October 2016. 

The world premiere exhibition, Viktor&Rolf: Fashion Artists, explores the work of Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, whose illustrious 25-year career has seen them push “boundaries between art and fashion, often contrasting themes such as minimalism and opulance, romance and excess, exuberance and control, classicism and conceptualism,” according to event organisers. 

Viktor& Rolf: Fashion Artists will be at NGV International, 180 St Kilda Road, Melbourne, Australia from 21 October 2016 to 26 February 2017. Tickets on sale now from ngv.vic.gov.au.
