VIKTOR & ROLF have enlisted musician and style icon Roisin Murphy to perform at their spring/summer 2010 show in Paris tomorrow, where she will give guests a sneak preview of her new, soon to-be-released material.

"We are attracted and inspired by what we call mega-women: strong women who follow their own path and are uncompromisingly themselves," the designers explained. "Roisin Murphy is a source of inspiration for us; we share with her the need for theatricality and performance in our work. For us, fashion is more than the trend of the season. A fashion show is a way to communicate with a bigger audience, not just the inner fashion circle. Music plays a powerful part in this communication as does the internet. To exemplify this, our show, including Roisin's performance, will be available on our website the very same evening."

"I am a huge fan of Viktor & Rolf," Murphy said. "Their designs encapsulate futuristic techniques and wry surrealism, the clothes are literally a thrill to wear. I have been known to go to some extremes in my fashion choices but the Viktor & Rolf dress that I wore for my Overpowered promotion had its own sound and lighting rig incorporated which tops them all!"
