INSPIRATION: VALENTINO RETROSPECTIVE

Been so busy lately, haven't had time to do some proper posting. However, I did head to the Valentino Retrospective exhibit over the weekend with my girlfriends. The exhibit featured 100 haute couture looks from throughout Valentino's 50 years in fashion. It was great to see the pieces in such close view from his earliest designs to the latest evening gowns worn by celebrities like Julia Roberts and Halle Berry. The attention was detail was spectacular -all the intricate embroidery, sequins, embellishments and unique construction details. The timeless quality of his work meant that any of these vintage pieces could be easily tweaked just a little to suit today's trends. It was definitely a treat for the eyes!
