the Valentino Garavani Archives

20 Dec

A lot of things have happened in fashion recently that lie outside of the typical runway and financial aspects one generally hears about. As a fash-o-phile, I downloaded Valentino’s archives the second they were available. It’s been a little less than two weeks since the debut and I’ve analyzed every corner. This is a wild feat and really revolutionizes fashion and the documentation of its history. There are 300 dresses in the archives, each accompanied by the designer’s sketch and any other material there could be — such as editorials and party photos. Most galleries are organized with a theme which creates a gorgeous atmosphere in the stunningly architected Palazzo.

Since admission to the WWD archives is pretty expensive and doesn’t reach as far back and with such depth as the Valentino Archives, this definitely will be something that other fashion houses will definitely hop onto.

DEFINITELY DOWNLOAD THE APP! It’s so worth it, the link is here: Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum
