This is beyond comprehension ! I am still full of emotions after seeing so much beauty. I had an opportunity to take part in the press conference with Alexandre Vassiliev and observe the exhibition two days before the official opening.
Mr. Vassiliev took everyone on a tour, acting as a guide and telling history facts as well as funny stories about gowns. Did you know that in 30's the most expensive coats were made from monkeys fur ? And in the beginning of last century every girl had a ball notebook where she wrote down list of young men's names and dances with them.
I sincerely recommend to visit the exhibition and see with your own eyes 93 exclusive couture ball gowns and 720 accessories. It is truly amazing and inspiring ! And now, have a look at those tempting pictures...
