A few weeks ago, Mike and I went into the city to check out the Louis Vuitton VVV Exhibit. It was free to the public, you just needed to reserve tickets online. The exhibit closes this Sunday, so if you’re reading this, you’re in the tri-state area, and you love fashion history, you have to go now!
Louis Vuitton is probably my favorite luxury brand and history facinates me. I remember learning all about Louis Vuitton and his start in the industry by designing trunks for the large custom couture dresses the wealthy women would have designed in Paris. It was amazing to see all the log books kept by him and the family that took over after him. I geeked out over the sketches and of ad campaigns. Mike laughed at how nuts I went over the gowns designed by Marc Jacobs when he was the creative director of LV. I remember seeing them on the red carpets and loving them then, so I was “starstruck” when I saw them in person. All and all it was really cool to see the brand from it’s start to where it is today.
I know many of my readers are from all over the country and won’t be able to see the Louis Vuitton VVV Exhibit so here are some photos I took during my visit.
