If you haven’t had enough of Ballgowns after seeing the V&A Exhibition, you can head over to Somerset House for a major new show celebrating the life and work of Valentino. It will showcase over 130 exquisite haute couture designs worn by icons such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Grace Kelly, Sophia Loren and Gwyneth Paltrow in an exciting installation created specially for Somerset House.
Visitors will start with a private view of Valentino’s world through photographs from his personal archive, offering an intimate portrait of the life of the master. The exhibition then unfolds into a couture fashion show where roles are reversed with visitors walking the catwalk to view a staggering one hundred and thirty Valentino haute couture designs.
Valentino: Master of Couture promises to be a journey into the secretive world of Italian couture.
