Fashion designers in Europe have come up with creative and more entertaining ways to present their spring 2004 women's clothing collections in their fashion shows. Designer Alexander McQueen staged a retelling of the 1969 film 'They Shoot Horses, Don't They?' to showcase his collection at Salle Wagram, a 19th-century dance hall in Paris, France. Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, on the other hand, held a retrospective showing of their ten-year collaboration at the Museum of Fashion and Textile of the Louvre. A number of other European designers also held their shows in museums and galleries. The shows highlighted the designers' increasing embrace of color, embellishment and bold designs, as well as fluid and overtly feminine clothes.
