So, after Alexis Mabille and Martin Margiella were granted the appelation from Chambre Syndicale de la Couture last year as official members, this year's couture callender is welcoming the Dutch dynamic duo Viktor Horsting and Ralf Snoeren of Viktor & Rolf as correspondent member (the highest official title as which they can be considered, since they're not based in Paris).

The Barbican Museum in London featured their designs (including their couture ones) in a wonderful exhibition back in 2008. Photo from The Barbican Museum.

In the midst of economic downturn in some part of the world for some particular people, it seems that the heartbeat of couture keeps louder and louder. It is great to see another creative force joining the world that not many people understand, the true form of art, the crème de la crème of fashion. After 13 years absent from the prestigious stage of couture, I believe this is gonna be something BIG!.

Gefeliciteerd, Mr. Horsting and Mr. Snoeren. We are all looking forward to seeing your fashion tour de force in the future...




Signorefandi, come to couture, people!
