Last weekend my lovely friend asked me if I would like to go see the Chanel ‘Mademoiselle Privé’ exhibition with her that is currently on at the Saatchi Gallery. And even though I’m not really into the whole designer fashion thing, everyone knows how beautiful Chanel designs are, and I am a fan of the Saatchi gallery, so I was curious to see what the exhibition was like.
We arrived in Sloane Square to a winding queue of people all the way out of the gallery gates and across the square. Not the 10 minute queue we had anticipated. But nonetheless we joined the line and after an hour long shuffle, we reached the entrance and were in.
^^ This view made up for the long queue. London, you sure do look pretty in Autumn ^^
I have to be honest, I wasn’t overly impressed with the whole exhibition (just my opinion though so don’t let this sway you from checking it out yourself). The ground floor was made up of sparse rooms with the odd feature and there wasn’t really a lot to look at or read, so we were through and onto the next rooms within minutes. It wasn’t until we reached the second floor and the clothes that we really began to appreciate the show. They really were beautiful and it was such a rare opportunity to see them close up that it just about made it worth the hour long wait to see.
