Part of the proceeds from the Audrey Hepburn exhibit will go to UNICEF Philippines
Ditch the idea of having breakfast at Tiffany’s to channel your inner Audrey Hepburn and visit her upcoming exhibit instead.
The exhibition devoted to the life of the iconic actress called “Intimate Audrey” will be available at The Museum at S Maison at the Mall of Asia complex in Pasay City starting from August 1 until October 29, 2023.
This much-awaited exhibit is made possible by the collaboration of SM Supermalls and FashX, a fashion trade and licensing company in the country.
Born in Belgium, the late actress is celebrated for her classic beauty and style, as well as her unforgettable roles in films such as “Roman Holiday” (1953), “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” (1961), and “My Fair Lady” (1964).
“Intimate Audrey” in Manila
“Intimate Audrey” was first unveiled in Brussels, Belgium in 2019, Audrey’s hometown. It was initiated by her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, to celebrate the British actress’ 90th birth anniversary.
The local launch of the exhibit would have Sean himself along with his daughter Emma, according to a statement released by SM Supermalls.
Fans of the stunning star who will visit the Manila stop of “Intimate Audrey” can expect original and reprinted photographs, memorabilia, dresses and accessories, fashion drawings, and humanitarian writings in a 730-square meter space.
To ensure the local flavor of the exhibit, it will also include a section called “Audrey: An Homage from Filipino Fashion,” which would showcase special fashion pieces by some of the country’s top designers who were inspired by her life and work.
Among them are 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, and Cary Santiago, and National Artists Salvacion Lim-Higgins and Ramon Valera.
Tickets are available online at SM Tickets and offline at SM Department Stores and SM Cinemas at P850 each, with a special rate of P450 for students, senior citizens, PWDs, national athletes, and medal of valor awardees.
Truly in honor of Audrey, part of the proceeds from the exhibit will go to UNICEF Philippines, which aligns with the late actress’ efforts as its goodwill ambassador.
