Last night at Haunch of Venison in London’s West End, Krug, one of the world’s most renowned champagne houses launched the ‘Happiness’ Exhibition at the Royal Academy of Arts. Celebrities from fashion, music and art including Lady Amanda Harlech, Virginia Bates, Andrew Logan, Nicky Haslam, Alex James and Jasmine Guinness attended the launch of the exhibition taking place from 13th-20th December which hopes to raise funds vital for the Royal Academy Schools.

 

Krug and the Royal Academy invited celebrity patrons of the arts to ‘create their own version of happiness’ by donating something to the exhibition that embodies happiness to them personally.

Noted contributors such as David Bailey, Vivienne Westwood, Manolo Blahnik, Erdem, Olivier Krug, Sienna Miller and Bella Freud are amongst several luminaries from different creative industries in the worlds of art, fashion, theatre, gastronomy and culture giving something from their private lives. The donation will be accompanied by a quote from each contributor that explains why the piece they chose is the ultimate meaning of happiness to them.

Creative consultant, Lady Amanda Harlech co-curated the ‘Happiness’ Exhibition alongside Edith Devaney of the Royal Academy. By bringing both creativity and passion to her everyday work,  Lady Harlech is lending her talent and enthusiasm for this  inspiring exhibition. 
Crafting lovers of champagne’s happiness since 1843, Krug champagne is quintessentially classic, successfully combining rarity with prestige. Inspired by the emotion that drives Krug, the ‘Happiness’ Exhibition encompasses what the champagne strives each day to share with Krug lovers around the world.
The  ‘Happiness’ Exhibition runs from December 13th  to December 20th  and is located at 6 Burlington  Gardens, Piccadilly, W1J 0BD. The exhibition will be free to enter and will run 10am  – 6pm Monday – Friday, Saturday 9am  – 10pm and will be closed Sunday. All pieces will be sold at the gallery on a first offer basis.
