Valentino was founded in 1960 when Valentino Garavani opened a fashion house in Rome, Italy, to bring his passion for drama and a luxurious lifestyle into couture designs. In 2007, game-changing and dynamic creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli were appointed to head Valentino. They’ve been carrying on the traditional Italian leather craftsmanship and multicolour modern prints in both formal and casual context since then.
