Intimate Audrey is a bespoke exhibition on the life of Audrey Hepburn created by her son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer, to celebrate her 90th birthday anniversary. Originally launched in her birth town of Brussels, Belgium, the exhibition made a stop in her home country of the Netherlands (Amsterdam) where she spent the war year. The exhibition includes over 1800 photographs, memorabilia, dresses and accessories, as well as her never before seen fashion drawings and humanitarian writings. A series of poignant videos bring each of its chapter to life.
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 to 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.
Attending the vernissage in Manila are Audrey’s own son, Sean Hepburn Ferrer and her granddaughter, Emma Hepburn Ferrer.
