Audrey Hepburn exhibit has Manila as its first stop in Asia

Published Aug 02, 2023 8:00 pm

Intimate Audrey is a bespoke exhibition on the life of Audrey Hepburn created by her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer. Originally launched in her birth town of Brussels, Belgium, the exhibition made a stop in Amsterdam, the Netherlands where she, her mother, and her siblings moved in 1945 after the war. The exhibition includes over 800 photographs, memorabilia, dresses, and accessories, as well as her never-before-seen fashion drawings and humanitarian writings. It also features a series of poignant videos.

Part of the Intimate Audrey experience in Manila and a unique addition to the execution that was last on display in Amsterdam is an exclusive tribute called AUDREY: An Homage from Filipino Fashion. This section highlights the works of some of the Philippines’ most celebrated designers and how each one of them took inspiration from Audrey Hepburn’s films and documentations of her personal life.

It includes works and pieces from Pepito Albert, Ivar Aseron, Vic Barba, Mike dela Rosa, JC Buendia, Len Cabili, Auggie Cordero, Rhett Eala, Jun Escario, Ben Farrales, Cesar Gaupo, Rajo Laurel, Jojie Lloren, Dennis Lustico, Randy Ortiz, Frederick Peralta, Puey Quiñones, Patrice Ramos-Diaz, Philip Rodriguez, Cary Santiago, and National Artists Salvacion Lim-Higgins and Ramon Valera.
