Valentino

When considering legendary Italian fashion house Valentino, three words come to mind: luxurious, bold and iconic. For more than 50 years, Valentino has been a cornerstone of the international fashion scene, creating evocative fragrances, statement-making ready-to-wear, and signature shoes and handbags (under the Valentino Garavani label) with haute couture craftsmanship.

Known simply by his first name, Valentino Garavani is one of Italy's finest exports. Universally admired for his exquisite couture creations and romantic red carpet gowns, he is now in his eighties and retired from his eponymous label but remains a significant figure in the fashion world.
