Valentino The Great

Valentino Garavani is one of Italy's finest exports, admired for his exquisite couture creations and divine red carpet gowns. Unfortunately my gown collection is not yet underway, but one day I will have my Valentino number, and preferably an occasion to wear it. Whilst roaming around London a few days ago I stumbled upon the 'Valentino: Master of Couture' exhibition at Somerset House; a major exhibition celebrating the incredible life and work of Valentino Garavani. From photographs from his personal archive, to a couture fashion show revealing one hundred and thirty of his haute couture designs, I would honestly say the exhibition is a fascinating insight into the life of Valentino. Tickets cost £12.50, and I can safely say it was worth every penny. I even ventured into the gift shop in high spirits, feeling like an absolute fashionista and hoping to waltz out of Somerset House with a few of the finest Valentino souvenirs. Unfortunately I work in retail, thus could only afford the novelty £12 tote bag. At least I can do my food shop in style…

Here we have the designer tote bag that I am actually damn right chuffed with! Who says you need money to be stylish!?
