The Master of Couture

Halli Hallo :) I'm writing from my bed... I'm super sick :( a terrible cold/flu... whatever it is! I have been in bed since Monday evening and I'm extremely bored but I don't have the energy to get up. I hope I feel better tomorrow so I can go back to work. 
Two weeks ago I went to Somerset House to view the Valentino Master of Couture exhibition :) It was amazing. I love Valentino! Even his Couture dresses are very wearable. I don't mind a bit craziness when its Couture but some designers are going really wild :D then I ask myself who would actually wear this? On the other hand one could argue that Couture is art and not made to be worn :)

What I loved about the exhibition was that it was in the form of  a catwalk show. So basically all guests, myself, were walking the runway to get a closer look at the amazing dresses he created throughout his life. In between the dresses there were empty chairs with celebrity names who wore his dresses in that decade. 
The final part of the exhibition displayed videos showing special sewing techniques he used for the dresses. I thought that was the most interesting part :) I love sewing even though I'm not very good at it. My grandma taught me how to sew a pillow and other basic things when I was younger hahaha :D Yes I can sew pillows. I think she regretted teaching me as I ended up sewing 10 pillows for her...
If you are interested in the exhibition you still have time to go :) Its on till the 3rd March - click here.
I bought a ticket for the Exhibitions on Film - Valentino the last Emperor session on the 2nd March but unfortunately I can't go :( Really gutted. 
I would love to post more outfit pics but unfortunately there is no one who can take pics of my outfits during the week :( I could use the remote control in the mornings but its too dark... and I hate using flash.
Take care guys.

Outfit details: Hat, Jumper and Trousers: H&M, Fur waistcoat: Romwe, Shoes: No name, Bag: Topshop, Scarf: Primark
