Valentino's New York Couture Show
Never a man to fit the mold, Valentino is breaking the fashion structure once again, this time by presenting a couture collection in New York. This follows two couture shows already presented this year in Paris – one in January and another in July, and will be followed by yet another couture show in January of 2015. The designers, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli, are unstoppable machines.
The show will serve as an addendum to the opening of a flagship store in Fifth Avenue (where else?) in December and is one of the many brands who have decided to opt out of the typical fashion bible, which says “thou shalt show couture in Paris, and thou shalt not disobey the thread gods.” But alas, Valentino is one of the most important houses, so they can pretty much do whatever they want…and we’re ok with that.
