Viktor & Rolf Haute Couture This just in off the wires. Viktor & Rolf will be presenting their first Haute Couture Collection in over a decade on the Paris Haute Couture calendar in July. They were voted a correspondence member by the Chambre Syndicale, the Governing body of French fashion, allowing them to once again show in the city of lights. They first showed in January 1998 and their last collection was in July 2000. They are currently on their American tour with an appearance at ikram, a trunk show in Dallas and a personal appearance at Nordstrom. Haute Couture has always been my favorite , as I was employed in the Couture atelier of Christian Lacroix in the mid 90’s. Gone are the days when Lacroix , Yves Saint Laurent and Galliano for Dior presented the most amazing concoction to a packed house. Now Couture is a dying art. With the Arrival and return of Viktor & Rolf , presenting their take on Modern Haute Couture we hope that it will return to its original glory.
