Valentino - The Great Italian Couturier

In addition to having "the most beautiful things on earth," 1stdibs (Michael Bruno's vintage and antique empire) is a wonderful source for fashion information. Its online publication, Introspective Magazine, has really amazing articles relating to the latest fashion, interior design, and shopping trends. This week, it featured FIT's tribute to the legendary Valentino Garavini, this year's honoree at the annual fundraising luncheon of the museum's Couture Council.

And who does not adore Valentino!!!!! I have grown up collecting pictures of Valentino's design and dreaming what it would be like to don one of his dreamy creations.

"I always wanted to make women beautiful," says the great Italian couturier Valentino Garavani, otherwise known to the world as simply "Valentino." And this he has done for over 60 years, designing creations which graced such icons as Sophia Loren, Elizabeth Taylor and Jacqueline Kennedy.

Here are some of my favorite Valentino creations.

To Valentino, for 60 plus years of celebrating feminine beauty.
Hope you have a wonderful weekend, wherever this post finds you.
