“Su ropa es la única con la que me siento yo misma. Es más que un diseñador; es un creador de personalidad”

  – Audrey Hepburn

Cuando supe que se cancelaba la exposición de Valentino en el Museo Thyssen de Madrid, me dio mucha pena. Me hacía muchísima ilusión. Pero dicen que no hay mal que por bien no venga, y en este caso, para mi fue bastante mejor el remedio 🙂 Pronto supe que Valentino sería sustituido por la obra de uno de mis diseñadores favoritos: Hubert de Givenchy. Mejor aún, la exposición está comisariada por el propio Givenchy, y ofrece por tanto, una visión única de sus colecciones a lo largo del tiempo.

Así que en cuanto tuve un fin de semana libre, me escapé a Madrid y fui a ver la exposición. He de decir que me encantó, no esperaba menos de ella. Es una exhibición pequeña, pero con todo el encanto y la sencillez dignas de Givenchy. Quizás lo que más ilusión me hacía era ver los vestidos de Audrey Hepburn, ya sabéis que es mi ídolo ( 🙂 ). Pero salí encantada con todos y cada uno de los modelos; también había piezas de Jacqueline Kennedy y Carolina de Mónaco.

La exposición estará en el Museo Thyssen de Madrid hasta el 18 de enero. Os dejo algunas fotos de mis piezas preferidas!

“His are the only clothes in which I am myself. He is far more than a couturier, he is a creator of personality”

–Audrey Hepburn

When I heard that Valentino’s exhibition at the Thyssen Museum was cancelled I felt sad and disappointed. I was so excited about it. But they say every cloud has a silver lining, and this time, the solution couldn’t have been better! 🙂 Soon I read that Valentino’s exhibition was going to be replaced by one about one of my favorite designers of all times: Hubert de Givenchy. Better than that: I came to know that the exhibition was in part organized by Givenchy himself, a fact that provides a unique vision on the designer’s production through  time.

So as soon as I had a free weekend, I travelled to Madrid and went to see the exhibition. I have to say that I LOVED IT and I would go again. It’s a small one, but it’s full of Givenchy’s charm and simplicity. I was especially excited about seeing Audrey Hepburn’s dresses (you know she’s my idol), but of course it was much more than that! There were also pieces belonging to JAcqueline Kennedy and Carolina of Monaco, among others.

This retrospective will be at the museum until January 18th. Don’t miss it! Here are some of my favorite pieces. Hope you enjoy it!

      Finally let’s get some YOUNG blood in there! This is an opportunity to have seomone younger and with a fresher perspective. I remember one host having to explain to Mike last year what a hipster’ was and he was dumbfounded. As far as culture goes music, films etc., Mike is clueless unless it’s mainstream enough to be the Village People or Star Trek. Daybreak still sounds like it is geared towards 65+ years old demographic. Bring in a new, YOUNG, host please!

      Just FYI love your blog and you are so inspiring! I just can’t help but tell you that for smuemr I made the green jacket pattern but made it in black embroidered cotton with the short sleeves. It reminds me of an Eileen Fisher look. I love it and it is so comfortable and easy. I am thinking of making in some yummy textured wool as a winter laying vest. Maybe that is all that Ms. Green needs take off the sleeve extensions. Thanks again for wonderful inspiring blog. I am sewing up a winter wardrobe and plums, purples, magentas and some greys and staying out of the stores. Best to you, Nancy

      I just found your blog last night and absolutely LOVE IT! I work as a piinast in a university setting (collaborative piinast) and began sewing again in earnest a little over a year ago. My youngest, a son, is now in college, so I have a little more time. I did take Susan Khalje’s Couture Dress Class on Craftsy, and have grown so much as a sewist because of it. The clothes you’ve made this year are absolutely beautiful! As with music, I find that I love the detail work in sewing . . . especially the hand-work. I, too, am committing to purchasing fewer and fewer item for my closet, and making one garment of real quality instead. The only problem is that my 2 daughters have requests lined up as well. I hope to get them sewing soon (they have expressed interest). Can’t wait to see what you sew in the last month of your challenge. And please don’t stop the blog when your year is up. It’s way too much fun and so inspirational.All the best,

    Hi Laura!If you look on my gallery you’ll noicte the fabric source listed for each garment. I live 60 miles from Mary Jo’s Cloth Store in Gastonia, NC which is a pretty good general fabric store. I bought the pencil skirt fabric there last September. Garment fabric is limited to silk dupioni, some silk prints and weaves, special occasion fabric, spandex, wools and very limited selection of knits. The store seems to be increasing its home dec and quilting fabric departments.This year I shopped at Mood Fabrics for the first time and was hooked. It’s a wonderful fabric store loaded with any type of garment fabric you can imagine. Since I live so far from New York I order a lot of fabric online from Mood.I had a stash of Amy Butler quilting fabric when I started this year of sewing. I also had a few pieces from Waechter’s Silk Shop in Asheville NC ( online orders are available), and a few pieces of fabric I’ve bought here and there.I have an old mannequin that I keep wrapping batting around to resemble my current body . at least we’re the same height Thanks for writing
