Legends Of The MartiniPresented by Belvedere Vodka and curated by London College of Fashion graduate Tory Turk, Legends of the Martini at the Royal Academy of Arts is an interactive exhibition that celebrates the iconic cocktail. It will focus on eight key public figures and characters that are synonymous with the drink, including Elizabeth Taylor, who was renowned for ordering a martini as soon as she arrived on set; Ernest Hemingway, who described the drink as 'cool and clean' in A Farwell To Arms; and Dita Von Teese, famously pictured in her stage act posing in a giant martini glass. From watching a film inside a giant cocktail maker to climbing inside a Dita Von Teese style martini glass, the exhibition will be fully immersive. There will also be the chance to take part in a Martini Flight experience, where guests can sample different variable of the classic drink.
