Nadia Buick curated this wonderful exhibition of dresses and accessories from my second book, Dreaming of Chanel. The gallery at QUT looked like the salon of the finest couture house in Paris. Dresses of all styles, colours and decades graced the space and Grant's illustrations added extra glamour to the hand painted navy and pink striped walls. The stars twinkled as Adrian opened the exhibition in the courtyard of the gallery. Hundreds of guests wandered through the exhibition for next few hours. What a fantastic evening and exhibition. The show is on until the 16th October. I hope you enjoy the fashion and intimate stories of the women who wore the dresses.
