Valentino Garavani, The last Emperor.

Valentino: The Last Emperor is a documentary about the life and work of Italian legendary fashion deisgner, Valentino Garavani. It takes you inside the magical, lavish, glamorous world of Haute Couture and the world of Valentino.

The film captures Joy, happiness, as well as tension in preparation for the shows. Life with his business/life partner Giancarlo Giammetti. The glamorous life, the mansions, the yachts, the prive jets, the contacts and the ultimate power in fashion!

Valentino celebrated his 45 years in fashion with a 3 days extravagant festivities in Rome between 6th and 8 July 2007. Festivities started on July 5th with a dinner for Valentino's assistants and employees July 8th with the launch of a perfume and a brunch at the French Academy of Villa Medici.

On July 6th an exhibition entitled "Valentino in Rome, 45 years of style"was launched at the ancient sacrificial altar Ara Pacis showcasing Valentino's most important creations from the past 45 years. On July 7th a fashion show for his Fall '07/'08 Haute Couture was held for 1000 people, and for the first time in 16 years, it was held in Rome, not in Paris.
The festivities brought celebrities, royalities and fellow designers from all around the world to pay homage to the designer.

Last year, I was very lucky to be able to attend the exhibition Valentino - Thémes et Variations' at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs in Paris. There were alot of his famous designs, and one can go very close and see all the details, it was the best €8 I've spent in my life (well, almost :P) .
I like what Valentino said about himself: "designing dresses is the only thing im good at. I am a disaster at everything else".
