Arrivederci

This week marked a historic event in the fashion world…Valentino showed his final collection after almost five decades of dressing Hollywood stars ranging from Elizabeth Taylor to Cameron Diaz.

He celebrated his 45 year anniversary last July with parties in Rome. “It was a moment that will be impossible to repeat. And so, at this time, I have decided that it is the perfect moment to say adieu to the world of fashion,” Valentino said in September when he announced his retirement.

His latest spring-summer haute couture collection, unveiled on Wednesday, added to years of exquisite creations by the designer.


Couture collections

Valentino was probably most notorious for his signature red dresses. Here’s a few of my favourites.

Valentino has designed so many perfect dresses over the years and will be sorely missed by the fashion industry.

I didn´t really care much for his collections but I always thought he was a great personality reading interviews and the fact that even claudia schiffer had to fight some tears really does him justice.
