From Jacqueline Onassis to Keira Knightley, Elizabeth Taylor and Chloe Sevigny, Valentino Gavarani has dressed the greatest icons of fashion. Sone name itself has become a symbol of elegance and femininity.
Trained at the Fine Arts and the Trade Union Chamber of Couture in Paris, the young Romain made his debut at Jaques Fath and Balenciaga before joining the house of his friend Guy Laroche. Returning to his native land, he created his eponymous house in 1960 with Giancarlo Giammetti.
Her evening gowns are structured, cleavage-cut. Their particular red has made them the must-haves of an entire era, and of today.

In Man, the materials are noble and the prints surprising.
