Valentino: Master of Couture

 

Opening this week at London’s Somerset House, the new exhibition “Valentino: Master of Couture” celebrates the esteemed career of arguably the first Italian couturier. Hosting 130 handcrafted pieces and personal ephemera, the show aims to offer a new perspective of Valentino’s oeuvre.

“My private world is a simple world. I thank heaven for the life it has given me. I have a great appetite for splendour, but at the same time for simple tastes.” -Valentino

If there ever was a designer who exactly personified la Dolce Vita, it’s Valentino. For over fifty years he has been dressing the world’s most glamorous women according to his own vision of elegance, from royalty and Hollywood icons alike, earning him generations of Val’s gals; Jackie Kennedy Onassis, Babe Paley, Audrey Hepburn, Sophia Loren and Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece..
