This year is definitely THE year to live (or visit) London. I have loved it always, but 2012 is set to be the best year yet. There is so much going on, you’re spoilt for choice how to spend your days off and I’m talking just about the exhibitions. The fashion industry, shopping, choice of restaurants… that would make a whole new article.
For now I’ve picked the top 3 exhibitions I think are a must-see. All fashion related. One better than the other. Bring it on.
Believe it or not, the house of Christian Louboutin has celebrated 20 years of existence! To mark this anniversary, they recently released a book (coffee table must-have) and are doing lots of great promotions this year. There is an exhibition coming to Design museum and it is something (not only) every shoe lover will appreciate. You will be able to see the whole designing process of famous red soled beauties from drawing to finish and much more. See you there. 19/05 – 06/06

V&A museum has been spoiling us recently. So many great exhibitions to visit. I am super exciting about two displays particularly, one of them being the Ballgowns: British Glamour since 1950. More than 60 designs will be on show, including pieces for social events such as private parties, royal balls, state occassions and many more.
You can expect work by Jonathan Saunders, Alexander McQueen, Jenny Packham, Giles Deacon and Erdem among others. Can May come any faster?
(Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s)
Last but definitely not least, is another exhibition at the V&A. They’ve only announced today, that this is happenning so I haven’t got much information for you yet, but I will bring more as soon as I know. It will be called Hollywood costumes and will open this fall. It’s an extensive collection of famous costumes of the big screen, including the famous dress of Holly Golightly from Breakfast at Tiffany’s, costumes of Jack Sparrow of the Pirates series and many more. Excited? I am!
