August – Behind The Scenes of Valentino GoMa
Wed 25th August 3.30 – 6.00pm – Drinks afterwards TBC (Surfclub, Southbank)
‘Valentino, Retrospective: Past/Present/Future’ is a major exhibition developed by Paris’s renowned decorative arts museum, Les Arts Décoratifs. It explores the work of the celebrated Italian fashion house Valentino, known the world over for its sophisticated, timeless design and glamorous clientele.
The exhibition encompasses haute couture from the first collection designed in 1959 by the house’s founder, Valentino Garavani, through to work from the Autumn/Winter 2009-10 collection. One hundred exquisite haute couture garments will reveal Valentino’s mastery of the elegant line, classic form and opulent detail. Particular ‘themes and variations’ will be explored that unite Valentino’s design approach across more than five decades: these include the recurrence of geometric patterns and graphic prints, the skilful use of fabric to create dramatic silhouettes, and of course the distinctive palette of black, white and ‘Valentino red’.
‘Valentino, Retrospective: Past/Present/Future’ will open at GoMA and will be its exclusive presentation in Australia. This follows the exhibition’s successful realisation in Paris in 2008, which was a celebration of Mr Garavani’s forty-fifth and final collection presented in that year. The future direction of this most esteemed fashion label will be showcased through five designs by the House of Valentino’s new creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.
Designs from house of Valentino have been coveted and worn by European royalty, Hollywood celebrities and members of high society the world over. This magnificent exhibition will include garments worn by stars such as Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Julia Roberts, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and more.
‘Valentino, Retrospective: Past/Present/Future’ has been designed and realised by Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris, with the assistance of the Valentino fashion house, Rome.
