Rüpert von Rom: Must-See The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014

Dear darlings,

I have got a wonderful new exhibition for you as this month’s must-see.
Go to London because the Victoria and Albert Museum has got another exhilarating show for you.
Celebrating almost 70 years of italian fashion, the exhibition ‘The Glamour of Italian Fashion 1945-2014’ is a total MUST-SEE for any fashion darling like myself.
The exhibition will draw out the defining factors unique to the Italian fashion industry. My advise to you: indulge yourselves in London in the glamour that is italian fashion.
And remember: Italians do it better.
