Whilst in London last week, I visited Somerset House to see Valentino: The Master of Couture exhibition. The exhibition celebrates the life and work of Valentino, showcasing over 130 hand-crafted designs worn by icons such as Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren and Gwyneth Paltrow. The exhibition is a unique experience and is split up into separate rooms. The first room features previously unseen personal photographs, couture invitations and images of Valentino at work and play from his personal archive. The garments are shown down a Catwalk where visitors take a journey through fashion from the 1950's to today. The garments are grouped in themes rather than chronologically, so it did get quite difficult to manoeuvre as it was quite busy and you had to keep walking back on yourself. After this we saw the wedding dress of Princess Marie-Chantal made with ten different kinds of lace and also different techniques that the Fashion house use. The exhibition has run from 29th November 2012 - 3rd March and was well worth seeing such gorgeous detail. If you didn't get to see the exhibition for yourself, view the virtual museum here
