Valentino Garavani was born in Italy in 1932, studied fashion design in Italy and Paris, and started his first line in Rome in 1959. His red dresses were a hit, and the colour “Valentino Red” was born. In 1962 he showed internationally and gained a following amongst aristocrats and socialites. In 2008 Valentino retired, and his ornate, feminine style has made way for a more youthful romantic look. See what Valentino favourites we have in store for you at LXRandCo.
