In an article HERE in New York Magazine by Véronique Hyland, she praises the recent 2017 Viktor and Rolf Collection fashion show for “… showing vintage gowns and cocktail dresses some TLC.”
The new gowns are made up of fragments from older pieces and she rates the results as “stunning.”
“They took a decades-spanning assortment of pieces that were old or even a bit damaged and transformed them into winning couture collages. For good measure, they gilded some of the scraps,” she writes. This blogger hopes the destroyed dresses were beyond repair.
