London Boys: Nick Verreos and David Paul explore London, November 2015

A couple of weeks ago, I was in London for the Debut of my NV Nick Verreos clothing line on QVC UK. Naturally I went with my better half--David Paul. We had been here before, several years back, and did the requisite tourist visits to Westminster Abbey, the Victoria & Albert Museum plus much much more, so this time around for our short stay in London, we decided to just shop and make sure to go to the Mademoiselle Privé Exhibition

In case you are not aware of the Mademoiselle Privé Exhibition, it was a "journey" through the House of Chanel's creativity. It was organized by Karl Lagerfeld--along with Chanel--as a showcase of the original Chanel Salon, Gabrielle "Coco" Chanel's design origins (hat making) and fabric, chain and camellia inspirations plus a lot more, of course.

Before we left to London--after some research--we realized that the day after we arrived would be THE FINAL DAY of the Exhibition. In other words, we had no option but to go. Of course, once we showed up, there was a very long, long line to attend (it was free!). The line took about an hour and a half (not bad, considering) but yes, we did it. Here are photos from the exhibit:
