Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, who founded the Amsterdam-based fashion house, took to the catwalk to assist with completing the outfits in the collection live.

One by one, “paintings” hung on a partition at the back of the stage were unhooked by the duo.

“Art comes to life in a gallery of surreal proportions,” said Viktor & Rolf’s show notes. “A dress transforms into an artwork, back into a dress and into an artwork again. Poetry becomes reality, morphing back into fantasy.”
