Louis Vuitton X Exhibition: Bringing More than Fashion to Beverly Hills
Living in Los Angeles, I have the luxury of attending many art events, galleries, and exhibits. There’s LACMA, the Broad, the ever so popular pop-ups like The Happy Place and the Museum of Ice Cream -- you name it, we’ve got it. This past summer, something new and exciting arrived: The Louis Vuitton X, which sits on the corner of Santa Monica Blvd. and Rodeo Drive. Talk about bringing more LA traffic, right?
As I approached the building, I noticed a variety of visitors gathered to see the same thing. This already intrigued me because here I am (a fashion-lover of all sorts) interested in the history and the pieces that were going to be showcased. “I don’t think everyone here feels the same thing I feel,” I thought as I looked at the families with children, the couple who looked like they were on a date and the woman talking on the phone.
Moving through each room, I noticed a significance within each of them. The families were intrigued by the history of Louis Vuitton being able to create and design when he was only 16. The couple seemed to have enjoyed the dark room the most, so they could sneak a kiss. The woman who snapped a million photos in the red-carpet room, which had almost every embroidered, sequined silk evening gown every celebrity has ever worn. Lastly, the 14-year-old girls who sat on the pink staircase taking one another’s photos until they had the perfect one to post for the ‘gram. You name it, there was a place for everyone.
The experience of the museum was not only for the girl who loves her fashion culture, but also for anybody and everybody. There are many aspects of the museum that would blow you away, and I am so glad I got to experience it. If you haven’t already checked it out and you’re in LA, you need to go! And hey, did I mention, it’s totally free?
