Arrivederci Valentino!!!

Valentino Garavani has been designing fine fashions for the world’s elite for over 45 years, and has dressed movie stars, socialites, and royals around the world.  The Italian designer finished his incredible career this week with a final fashion show at the Musée Rodin in Paris on Wednesday, displaying his Spring/Summer 2008 haute couture line.  Supermodels, celebrities, and his loyal clients attended the show which featured his stunning red gowns.

Valentino gained worldwide fame, and became a household name, when Jackie Kennedy hired him to design her a new wardrobe following the death of her husband, President John F. Kennedy.  His couture only label was sold to HdP in 1998 for an estimated $300 million.  Valentino has been known for his flamboyant lifestyle and high living.  His presence will certainly be missed in the fashion world, but he is leaving at the top of his game.  Bravo!

The Valentino line will now be designed by former Gucci designer Alessandra Facchinetti.

CIAO VALENTINO!
