In my draping certificate final project last year, I dubbed my collection, “Ode to Valentino,” and I spent many joyous hours researching Valentino’s work and life in the FIT library. Not only did the man fashion amazing garments—he had an amazing life. And next week, “Valentino, The Last Emperor” will make its U.S. debut at New York City’s Film Forum and then open in Los Angeles, Chicago, San Francisco and Dallas. At last, we’ll get an intimate glimpse of one of Italy’s richest and most famous men and explore his unique relationship with his business partner and companion of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti. I can’t wait! Learn more.
