On Thursday morning I was invited by the National Gallery of Victoria to the Media Preview for their latest international exhibition – Victor&Rolf Fashion Artists.
The sun was shining! I put my Mirka Mora skirt on along with my favourite heals, blush lippy and a fresh new blouse and clippity-clopped down St Kilda road to grab a soy late before entering the gallery through the waterfall windows. I was re-living the days before I became a mum, enthralled in the wold of fashion, design and art!
The exhibition is a must see! Truly inspirational and a glimpse into the extravagant life of two incredibly talented fashion artists! On display are 40 of their spectacular haute couture gowns, 21 exquisite hand made dolls, behind the scenes runway footage, an electronic micro-sized runway, an entire room wrapped in a lifetime of imaginative sketches and an official Viktor&Rolf design store filled with T’s, totes, caps, cards, signature fragrances, a beautiful exhibition catalogue and a gorgeously illustrated children’s book staring their dog – Swan.
The children’s exhibition is also now open and I’ll definitely be returning with Cherry and Tiger for a special blog post!

ATELIER – Viktor&Rolf for Kids Thank you NGV for a brilliant day!
Some really fascinating pieces there! None as nice as the skirt you wore, I love the print!
Thanks Lauren! You’re so sweet! I love Mirka Mora’s paintings and was a little too excited when Gorman collaborated with her! x
It does look fascinating – and well done for capturing the NGV on a sunny day (given the weather we’ve had!) but I have to agree – I’m sold on the Mirka Mora skirt (I remember reading about that collaboration, and it clearly worked well!)
There are some great pieces in the exhibit. Can’t wait to take Miss 8 with me and check this out.
I can’t wait to head back with Cherry and Tiger soon! I’m sure they’ll love it! x Elle
Can’t wait to see what the children’s exhibition is like (through your eyes)!
I’ll be back soon to exploring it some more with the kids too! x Elle
How amazing! Loved following your Insta stories when you were there!
How brilliant are Insta Stories! Love seeing and showing behind the scenes! x Elle
