The exhibit is organized in three parts.
The first, shows personal photos and momentos of the designer, invitations to the fashion shows.
Then, a full size runway stage allows the viewer to see some of the most beautiful creations of the designer as on a Defilée.
The third, shows the wedding dress of Crown Princess Marie-Chantal of Greece, a video with scenes from the atelier shows “behind the scene” footage from the creation of a commissioned piece.
If you are in London now, and have time see the exhibit: Valentino: Master of Couture at Somerset House.
I will have a lot more to say about Valentino’s fashions, show you about the Virtual Museum that showcases his work.
