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 Princess Mabel of Orange-Nassau and Prince Friso 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.
A richly illustrated children’s book accompanies the exhibition with drawing activities for budding young designers, available at the NGV shop.
