What to expect
Featuring over 200 Valentino Haute Couture pieces and pret-à-porter outfits — presented on mannequins by La Rosa —accompanied by accessories and fashion objects displayed in an immersive scenography, the exhibition weaves a richly textured image of the city of Rome inlaid with private memories and precious discoveries from the Maison’s six decades-long history, including rarely seen ensembles designed for the likes of Elizabeth Taylor, Jacqueline Kennedy and, more recently, Zendaya, along with stunning creations and virtuosic examples of Valentino’s legendary cult of excellence.
The show is curated by Massimiliano Gioni, artistic director of the New Museum New York, and the fashion critic and author Alexander Fury, working closely with Valentino Creative Director Pierpaolo Piccioli."
