I was lucky enough to accompany the likes of Suzy Menkes, Rebecca Lowthorpe and other big fashion names to the press preview of the Valentino exhibition at Somerset House.There was a short talk from a member of Somerset House then the man himself, Valentino. Who exclaimed he 'loves England. Loves London' and 'Can't wait to spend more time at exhibitions here'. The bronzed, petite legend stayed calm and collected as press took numerous pictures and videos of him. Me? I was completely starstruck. Me and my friend had no idea what to do and the fact we were in a room with such great people was completely overwhelming.
The exhibition was utterly mesmerising and so inspiring; The exhibition is set out as if you're walking down a catwalk and Valentino's clients are the audience. The dresses are exquisite and seeing them up close, the attention detailing and thinking of the beautiful women who have worn them blew me away. My full review on my experience and the exhibition will be published tomorrow on www.theupcoming.co.uk
The exhibition runs from November 29th - 3 March 2013; Make sure you don't miss it!!
