A.F. Vandevorst spring / summer 1999
A show that was held in what seemed to be an old hospital ward, lined with two rows of beds. On each bed lay a girl, fully clothed and apparently asleep. Guests were asked to sit in bedside chairs, as if hospital visitors. And then the patients woke up and walked down the middle of the ward. They were wearing clothes constructed from clean white sheets and knitted blankets, and had bed socks on their feet.
Hirofumi Kurino: “Having seen a fashion show too many, I sometimes feel exhausted. It all seems a big waste to me then. I presume others must have the same feeling but still, they always seem ready for another show. I am fed up with this craze, this talk about fashion, the irresponsibility of journalists just chasing news. This ‘fashion for fashion’s sake’ is quite meaningless. But there are moment of magic. Many people will agree with me when I mention the three A.F. Vandevorst shows, in 1998 and 1999. Knowing these were their first presentations, we were more than amazed; I felt healed, saved, rescued.”
