‘The Future of Fashion is Now’ takes the visitor on a trip around the most innovative fashion from all over the world, with works by such designers as Viktor&Rolf (the Netherlands), Rejina Pyo (Korea) and Hussein Chalayan (Cyprus).
The exhibition will examine the critical stance young fashion designers worldwide are taking up in regard to ‘the system’ of fashion and modern society. Designers with a non-western background and designers from the countries that border Europe, where until recently there was little or no tradition of fashion, are actively seeking the transformation of the fashion system. The selection, from clothes and accessories to videos and installations, can be seen in the museum’s 1,500 m2 Bodon Gallery. The Future of Fashion is Now is the sequel to the successful exhibition ‘The Art of Fashion’ staged in Rotterdam in 2009 and, like that, is also an initiative by Han Nefkens and fashion expert José Teunissen.
Together with the work of these non-Western designers half of the latest collection of the internationally renowned Dutch fashion duo Viktor&Rolf will be shown. In the summer of 2013 Viktor&Rolf made their comeback with a new collection inspired by the famous Japanese Zen garden in Kyoto. A large number of their creations was purchased by Han Nefkens even before the collection was revealed. This acquisition will be shown in Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen.
