"Since all the garments in the exhibition will be black, I thought it would be good to end the show with something else: a white garment. I’ve chosen a dress from Viktor & Rolf’s spring 2020 haute couture collection, which is made from upcycled swatches in a patchwork design—an apposite metaphor for the future of fashion with its emphasis on community and sustainability. The dress will be shown floating in an “infinity box” surrounded by a tornado of swatches (inspired by the artist E. V. Day’s “Exploding Couture” series from 1999–2002), like a weather-­worn phoenix rising from the ashes."
