Valentino is one of my all time favourite designers. He is synonymous with opulence, extravagance, and drama.
Valentino became interested in fashion when he was studying in primary school. His debut in a fashion word began in 1962, in Florence, a fashion capital at the time. From then on the rest is history, to this day he is still one of the most influential designers of our generation.
Here are some of the examples of his amazing work, in this editorial spread for Italian Vogue, Spring and Summer 2013. Looking at his designs one might think of it as an extraordinary masterpieces, timeless with elegance and chic. I was fortunate enough to go see his work on display couple of month ago at Somerset House in London.
