About the designer


Valentino is one of the most honoured fashion houses in the world, based in Italy. Founder and designer Valentino Garavani is adored by many models, celebrities and socialites for his on point red carpet dresses. After Valentino's retirement, creative Directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were appointed in 2008. In July 2016, Maria Grazia Chiuri left Valentino, leaving Pierpaolo Piccioli to oversee the brand’s creative direction. However Valentino continuously dominates the house’s characteristic. In 2012, he designed Anne Hathaway’s wedding dress. More of the Italian house’s lines include Valentino Garavani, Valentino Roma and the more youthful RED Valentino.

Collection autumn/winter 2017

Valentino’s creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli attired the models in flowing A-line dresses with a midi or ankle-grazing length. The high neck dresses in geometric prints or plain satin were layered with soft pink ankle-grazing wool coats. An astounding velvet suit showed a delicate floral print with a black background, which ran from the hips to the ankles. Romantic frilled maxi dresses showcased the label's charming aesthetic, defined by a ruby red or black hue and subtly embellished with dainty flowers. The few monotone black silhouettes consisting of lace and silk maxi dresses were highlighted by geometrically printed looks in multiple vibrant colours. The graphic patterned fur and leather coat in vivid pastel colours couldn't pass by unnoticed and embodied the entire eccentric autumn/winter presentation.
