The House of Viktor & Rolf

Deerylou and I went to see the magical House of Viktor and Rolf at The Barbican tonight.

It's a fascinating look at the work of this original, imaginative and highly talented pair, over the past 15 years. The centrepiece of which is a huge dolls house that showcases perfectly crafted minature versions of some of their finest creations. The dolls are amazing to study as well as being a little sinister... as dolls often can be.

My favourite exhibit is "Russian Doll, A/W 1999-2000". Model Maggie Rizer wore the entire collection which was made up of eight costumes. She arrived in the first outfit and while standing on a turntable was dressed in each of the remaining seven couture piece by V&R.

For a sneak peek, take a look at this video from the Times Online.
