Exploration of a creative idea

I am a little behind on my fashion show watching lately so I just saw the photos of Viktor and Rolf's Spring 2015 couture show.  Wow, wow, wow!  These guys know how to take a concept all the way.  I love how their shows always have a clear, concise idea.  My mind is officially blown for this week.  They start out with a cute dress, a cute straw hat, and some flip flops and go on a journey to a mind blowing dress, a mind blowing straw hat, and some flip flops.  You need to see the progression for yourself.  They are genius.  You can see the whole thing unfold here Style.com.  I think this piece is my favorite:

This reminds me of sketchbook exploration.  When I sketch in my sketchbook, I keep my eye out for a tiny glimmer of an idea.  Then I try to stretch it and stretch it until it takes me somewhere really special.  This is when the best art is created.  Watching this fashion show feels like watching Victor and Rolf's idea evolve in the same way.  It's a great example of where you can go if you persist on a creative journey until you reach something amazing.
