Valentino: Master of Couture | Part Two

Part two of our exclusive three-part series continues the story behind the major fashion exhibition, Valentino: Master of Couture, hosted by Somerset House this autumn. The focus lies firmly the artistry of couture. The display of 130 of Valentino's most iconic pieces includes the dress that Julia Roberts wore when accepting her Academy Award to the stunning wedding gown of Princess Marie Chantal of Greece. We examine the work required to convey the beauty and elegance of Valentino's work in a static exhibition. We interview co-curator, Antonio Monfreda, who has worked on previous Valentino exhibitions and whose creative career spans fashion photography, film, art direction and set design, working with photographers such as Mario Testino and brands such as Burberry. Monfreda explains the overarching ideas behind the exhibition while Richard Greenwood, project manager, gives us a tour of the progress so far.
