Whilst researching how fashion designers had used 'glow in the dark' in their collections I came across this Viktor & Rolf range from the late 90's. The collection was shown twice, once in the dark followed by in the light so you see how the designs would look with the different lighting. Glow in the dark is often seen as some what tacky in designs used mainly on t-shirts so it was great to find something sophisticated and for the couture market. Although the outfits are only black and white in colour perhaps this simplicity is what could make the use of the pigment appear more refined.
