Valentino Garavani turns 80!

The designer of Voghera is still an Italian fashion icon throughout the world, a symbol of class and timeless style.

Five years ago the designer left the creative direction of his fashion house, with lots of festivities lasted three days. Since then, however, continued to move into the world of fashion, bringing together in festivals, exhibitions and charity events on the international jet set, passing from one to another of his residences in Paris, Rome, London and Gstaad. The long career has not been consecrated by a Roman museum, more often promised but never built, but has found an elite place in the web, with the opening of the Virtual Museum ( ), a real trip in 3D in the creative history of the house and around that world of friendships and testimonials that have made it so great is the name of the designer.

We do not know what he would like in order to celebrate these 80 years, having already received the highest honors as Neiman Marcus Award (the Oscar of fashion), the decoration of Grand Officer of the Order of Merit, the title of Knight Grand Cross and Knight of Labor, the Legion d’honneur, the highest honor of the French Republic. Surely he will not stand still for, during which time he commutes from New York to prepare the costumes for a show that New York City Ballet will stage this September. In November, however, opens an exhibition in London devoted to his fashion.
