Orchid before becoming jewel

Before and after... We decide to show the beauty of real flower and how it is looks like jewel. We think both are so splendid and unique,very difficult to compare. For being used as jewels, live orchids are selected for their color, elegance and uniqueness. Depending on the seasonorchid selection is always changing. The flower then goes through a preserving process, which can take up to a week per flower. With several coats of resin the flower's beauty is completely preserved forever.

VERY VALENTINO

Somerset House in London opens its doors for the fashion retrospective of the year – Valentino: Master of Couture.When Jackie Kennedy was engaged to Aristotle Onassis in 1968, she knew exactly the man to design her dress. Throughout his 50-year career, Italy’s greatest export, Valentino Garavani, was the go-to couturier for starlets and royalty looking for an outfit for the milestone moments in their lives. This piece – and more than 130 others – are exhibited at Somerset House in London, to celebrate the designer’s remarkable body of work. Gowns worn by Grace Kelly and Gwyneth Paltrow are mixed in with catwalk couture and specially commissioned outfits for private clients.

 

Now 80 years old, Valentino retired from the business in 2008, handing over the reins to creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, but is still an active ambassador for his eponymous atelier. “Each of these designs have a beautiful story,” he says. “The atelier crafted each so diligently by hand, taking hours, sometimes days to complete.” The curators Alistair O’Neill, Patrick Kinmonth and Antonio Monfreda were keen to show the other side of Valentino’s career, hence the amount of daywear on display.
