At the end of the nineties, Viktor & Rolf broke into the international fashion world as innovative designers with their theatrical catwalk shows and avant-garde creations. Now they are ready to conquer the world with their own fashion house, their perfume ‘flowerbomb’, a matching catwalk collection, and new lines of glasses and shoes.
Viktor & Rolf: “Because we’re worth it!” takes the viewer up close and personal with the Dutch fashion duo at this turning point in their career. Over the period of one year, documentary filmmaker Femke Wolting follows Viktor & Rolf every step of the way as they take on a new course. The documentary portrays a year in the career of famous duo starting with the exhibition in the Louvre Museum in 2004 and ending with the launch of their perfume and matching catwalk-collection autumn 2005.
The storyline of the documentary is set in real-time and introduces the audience to all aspects of the fashion trade: from the actualization of a new collection to the development of Viktor & Rolf as a world wide operating brand. The project shows how they capture the flame of the international fashion world, not only thanks to their exceptional creative and conceptual talents, but also thanks to their unique collaboration that has lasted for over a decade.
Together, the film and the exclusive bonus footage included on this DVD offer a rare, behind-the-scenes look at the making of a fashion house.
