HERMES TAKES ON LONDON - SAATCHI GALLERY.


So I went to see how Hermes Kelly bags and famed silk scarves are created at a new exhibition dedicated to the fashion house's craftsmanship. 
My passion for Hermes scarves are legendary and last year I did a photo-shoot showcasing some of my favorite scarves, take a look and click on the link below:-)

Travelling from China and stopping off for one week only, Hermès presents Festival des Métiers at Saatchi Gallery, London. Allowing visitors to get up close to the production processes behind some of their most iconic goods, “Festival des Métiers unlocks the poetic and unique crafts that are the essence of the house of Hermès.” Skilled makers give a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the construction of handbags, watches, fine-jewellery as well the opportunity to see their legendary scarves printed on-site. 
It was so AHHHHmazing to see how the scarves were made, a real treat!

The showcase opened today at London's  Saatchi Gallery and will remain open until the 27 of this month.

Did u know that every PRINT/PATTERN has a story behind it?

Diamonds will always be a girl's BEST friend.
 Nothing shines like a Diamond. 
COLOURS!
 
 The week-long Festival de Métiers exhibition is designed to "provide a fascinating insight into the traditions and values of Hermès in the crafting of fine objects," allowing the public to interact with the brand's craftspeople and see them at work. Visitors will be able to see selection of products (watches, leather goods and fine jewellery) constructed live, as artisans demonstrate how they make the luxury products in their workshops in France.
