Happy Birthday Valentino

11th May 1932 was the day the Valentino Garavani was born. The same day 82 years later the ‘Last Emperor of Fashion’ and Italy’s greatest couturier, still possesses an inspirational and influential presence. Valentino is, without a doubt, my favourite designer. The clothes he created and ideology that came with them simply oozed class, sophistication and elegance. All the while remaining wearable, simplistic and modest. His clothes and brand are universally recognised and utterly timeless. Stepping down from his label on September 4th 2007, was by no means the end. Today the label and brand Valentino is as strong and successful as ever due to the fantastic duo Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli. Happy Birthday Valentino. A fashion great and inspirational icon.
