Valentino: The Museum
Today in New York, Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti announce the new, virtual Valentino Museum, a downloadable foray into the designer’s world. After downloading the application at valentino-garavani-archives.org, users connect to an online database that includes more than 300 archival dresses as well as sketches, illustrations, advertising campaigns, editorials, and red carpet moments from the house’s history. Anne Hathaway, Vogue Italia‘s Franca Sozzani, and Google’s Amit Sood join Garavani and Giammetti at the Museum of Modern Art at 11 a.m. EST to announce the new project; the press conference live-streams below. The application will be available for downloading immediately afterwards.
