Valentino unveiled his New York Haute Couture fashion show live last night, it was a dazzling and resplendent all-white collection. The new store opened on Madison Avenue and the line shown was inspired by great women, from the 60’s to modern muses.
These are my favorite pieces in the collection:
SIXTIES INTO the SEVENTIES
SEVENTIES INTO the EIGHTIES

If you are interested in the history of Valentino Garavani, check out his Virtual Museum. It’s a downloadable desktop application that digitally displays the 50 year archive of Italian fashion designer Valentino Garavani. The application uses real-time 3D technology to create an immersive environment within the app. It connects to online media database that displays over 5,000 images including sketches, illustrations, advertising campaigns, editorials, red carpet moments and 180 fashion show videos. Content is arranged in a museum layout where users explore the different galleries and wings covering what would be over 10,000 square meters in an actual museum. The museum became available for download on December 5, 2011. Find it at http://www.valentino-garavani-archives.org. The Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum was created by Valentino’s long-time partner Giancarlo Giammetti.
The new flagship store on Fifth Avenue will root Valentino into the urban pattern of Manhattan.
