Hello everyone! so i was in London this weekend to see a number of exhibitions and i begun with the screening of the Valentino documentary on Saturday that lasted for about an hour thirty minutes. It was a behind the scenes insight into the creation of the art that is couture. The documentary titled Valentino: the last emperor was created in 2008 and premiered at the Venice film festival, however it was being screened for the third time since September in London at the Somerset house. It was a truly inspiring, witty and emotional documentary. It showed the highs, the lows, the hard work and sheer creative genius that goes into the creation of a fashion empire such as Valentino's. Passion, love and dedication to one's dreams were also beautiful themes in the documentary. The most entertaining and emotional parts of the documentary was the dynamics of the relationship between Valentino and his business partner since 1960 Giancarlo Giammetti. There was so much to reflect on when it was over and It reminded of some very important things such as; the importance of staying true to your aesthetic as an individual, be it creatively or just in your everyday life and the idea that there is no such thing as too much ambition when it comes to your dreams . Fashion is not just about beautiful dresses, its a way of life, an expression of our passions, how it is we see ourselves and how we want to be seen. A wonderful end to the day was dinner at a Mexican restaurant in Leicester square in honor of a friends Birthday.
For dinner I swapped my flats for court shoes and my hand bad for a clutch for a more dinner appropriate look.
