Milan city is a
watershed of cutting-edge fashion and high-wattage glamour.
Each season established brand names such as Giorgio Armani,
Versace, Prada, Dolce & Gabbana, and emerging talents stage
over 100 runway shows within a frenetic 1 week period. No one
knows more intimately about these happenings than fashion and
art photographer Rohn Meijer.
Adding to the glitz and excitement to Singapore Design
Festival 2007 is Rohn Meijer’s limited print edition of
Dreamgirls. Dreamgirls evokes memories of the hyped and
frenzied world of fashion modeling during the 1990s – la belle
epoque of Supermodels termed by Gianni Versace. Linda
Evangelista’s claim, "I don't get out of bed for less than
$10,000 a day” put into perspective the power and the
influence of supermodels. With unprecedented access to their
world, Rohn Meijer works reveal intimate, spontaneous, and
glamorous shots of the models backstage during their heydays –
these are images hitherto unseen until recently.
