Happy Monday!

...I was completely mesmerised by the Valentino retrospective which is currently showing in Brisbane until November, that I thought I would start the week by sharing some of these beautiful images from 'the book'. This exhibition celebrates the work of Valentino from the 60's to the 2010 collection. It was amazing to see so much haute couture in real life. The attention to detail and amount of work which goes into each piece can be appreciated. It was perfectly unforgettable....




...a beautiful keepsake for anyone who loves Valentino!

What a delight it was to read this article. The photo's,
that you selected were pure magical. Valentino, will always
be one of the best house of couture... Along side Lavin, Chanel and Armani.

Hi Amanda!
I love Valentino, and was lucky enough to meet "VaVa" once...Tan and all.....His couture has been over the top for a long time.... And I worked next door in Beverly Hills as a shopgirl for Dior!!!!!!(the politics were amazing...)These were some of his best, detail was always priority. Thanks!Maryanne xo
