Monaco’s Grace on show Down Under
Celebrations for Monaco's National Day have taken place in Sydney in the recently opened Sokyo Bar at The Darling. The event also celebrated the launch of ticket sales to the acclaimed "Grace Kelly- Style Icon" exhibition which will open 10 March 2012 at the Bendigo Art Gallery in Victoria.
Monaco Government Tourist Bureau Regional Director Alison Roberts-Brown opened the evening speaking of the attributes of Monaco and also reminding guests "Monaco is only 7 minutes away from Nice International airport by helicopter. This year we have launched the Monaco Passport program in Australia with travel partner French Travel Connection. For bookings of 2 nights or more at a selection of 6 beautiful Monaco hotels, guests can receive a complimentary helicopter transfer and visitors passes allowing access to some of Monaco's renowned museums and attractions".
As the guests sipped Perrier Jouet, the favourite champagne of Princess Grace, Monaco's Honorary Consul Mr Andrew Cannon spoke about the importance of the Princess Grace Kelly- Style Icon exhibition. Following its success at the V&A in London the exhibition focuses on the fashion of one of the world's most adored style icons. Under the direction of Karen Quinlan the Bendigo Art Gallery has rapidly carved a name as one of Australia's premier facilities for showcasing international couture exhibitions.
GRACE KELLY: Style icon is curated and organised by the V&A Museum, London and the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco. The exhibition will run from 11 March 2012 – 17 June 2012.
Tickets for the exhibition are now on sale and each ticket purchased offers the chance to win a trip to Monaco flying Emirates with helicopter transfer from Nice airport, staying at one of the opulent hotels of the Monte-Carlo SBM group.
