It seems that Valentino is making a habit of deviating from couture norms. For the second year in a row, the brand is bringing its latest couture collection to New York City in December. Last time, it was to celebrate the opening of its Fifth Avenue flagship; this time, their Mirabilia Romae Fall 2015 collection will be on display for one night only during "An Evening Honoring Valentino" at Lincoln Center.
The evening includes a Debbie Harry performance, and a presentation of "The Women's Leadership Award" creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli by Keira Knightley.
While the evening also includes a fancy black tie dinner as well as drinks, the performance is open to the public (this does not include access to the exhibit). Tickets for the show start at $75, and you can snag yours here or call 212-721-6500; but if you really want to get into that black tie dinner and exhibit and rub shoulders with the celebrity-studded host committee, you can do so for about $5,000.
