Valentino Retrospective: Past, Present, Future goes to Singapore

The exhibition - Valentino Retrospective: Past/Present/Future - pays tribute to a man who has been placed in the history of haute couture as an 'undenieable' ambassador of elegance. Developed by the prestigious Paris' institution Les Arts Decoratifs and, originally held in the French capital in 2008,  the exhibition travelled to Brisbane, Australia, last year before making its final stop in Singapore. One hundred pieces of exquisite haute couture designs by Italian maestro, Valentino Garavani, will be on display at Resorts World Sentosa from December 22, 2010 to February 13, 2011. The show will also feature collections from the 1950s and gowns worn by celebrities such as Julia Roberts, Elizabeth Taylor, Jackie Kennedy and more.

"His designs accentuate accentuate the silhouette, giving it fluidity, femininity and sensuality. Forms are clear, fabrics are sumptuous and all collections always possess a large scale of colors enhanced by rich embroideries." ~ Pamela Golbin, curator for the Fashion and Textiles collection of Les Arts Decoratifs.
