Fashion's Willy Wonkas and their Glamour Factory

Viktor and Rolf are quickly becoming one of my favorite designers, not only becuase they design amazing clothes but also because of their showmanship and creativity when it comes to presentation.  The fashion show for their 2010 F/W collection is so unique and interesting, that even I was shocked and pleasantly suprised.

The runway was graphic and awe inspiring and the concept was so cool.  Basically they start off with the beautiful and mature model Kristen McMenamy walking down in all her glory wearing a massive ensemble and stop mid runway on a rotating stage.

Then other models join her on the rotating stage and the designers themselves disrobe Kristen piece by piece and place the outerwear on to the younger models who then walk the full runway in their newly assembled looks.  Once Kristen was stripped down to her bodysuit, the process was reversed.  Certain pieces transformed themselves with a pull of a string allowing them to return to their original model in different form.

Viktor & Rolf, known for being the great performance artists of the fashion industry explained that their motto when creating this show's concept was  "Glamour Factory", giving the impression that Kristen was the prototype who was giving birth to her power woman clones.

Of course I am drooling over all of the black and the different textures.  I love the oversized zipper pulls and drawstrings.

You can see the entire collection at Style.com.  Or watch the full fashion show below.
