Valentino Couture

From Jackie Kennedy’s wedding dress to Julia Roberts’ Oscars dress, Valentino’s 50-year career in haute couture will feature in a new exhibition at Somerset House. Entitled Valentino: Master of Couture, the exhibition will display over 130 of his couture dresses, and be divided into three sections: History of Valentino, The Catwalk and The Atelier.

“Each of these designs has a beautiful story. The atelier crafted each so diligently by hand, taking hours, sometimes days to complete. The details are incredibly intricate. Though outside the runway shows and events, the dresses have rarely been seen. To be able to showcase these designs at Somerset House, where they can be seen in great detail by the public, is very unique.” — Valentino

The exhibition will run from 29th November until 3rd March 2013 between 10am and 6pm daily, opening until 9pm on Thursdays.

Will you be going to see the exhibition?
