Valentino, the last emperor of fashion

posted in: Blog | 0

On May 11th of last year, Italian fashion designer Valentino Garavani turned 90. Even though “the last emperor of fashion,” as he is more generally referred to, has been retired for more than ten years, his talent and sense of elegance point to a before and after in the world of runway.

Jackie Kennedy chose him to design her wedding dress for her union with Aristotle Onassis, and Julia Roberts accepted her Oscar while donning one of his creations. Her exquisite and glam works won the hearts of several celebrities, nobles, and even members of royalty.

His enhancement of the female form, meticulous eye, and attention to detail are distinctive features of his designs. Because of Garavani’s importance to the fashion world, Valentino red is named in his honor.

Following his retirement, his colleagues Maria Garzia Chiuri, who now works for Dior, and Pierpaolo Piccioli, who is currently leading their firm, continued his creative vision and pushed the industry.
