Somerset House will be holding an exhibition at the Embankment Galleries of a collection of Valentino's finest couture designs, from the 29th of November to the 3rd of March, 2013 to celebrate over 50 years of design from 'the master of couture'. Showcasing over 130 dresses and designs worn by celebrities from Grace Kelly to Gwyneth Paltrow, this is not to be missed.
The exhibition will be staged in 3 sections; the first delivering an intimate portrait of Valentino's life through photographs and specially commissioned films, the second reversing the role of the viewer and allowing them to walk the catwalk to view his designs in 3D, and the third displaying the painstaking processes that designers and couture-crafters go through sewing each stitch by hand. It looks to be an incredibly interesting exhibition and any Valentino-lover, or just fashion-lover in general, should be excited to see this!
There is also an exclusive style event to be held on the 30th of November where Valentino, along with Giancarlo Giammetti, will be in conversation with Colin McDowell exploring all aspects of Valentino's life and work. Unfortunately, this is sold out already! But I'm sure we will see a lot about this in the blogosphere!
