Designer Bio…

When Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli were appointed joint creative directors to Valentino, it was a surprise to everyone including their predecessor, Alessandra Facchinetti.

Everyone, besides the shocked Facchinetti, seemed satisfied with the advance of Chiuri and Picciloi and with good reason. The duo has “received standing ovations from its founder and a general consensus of brilliant from the buyers and press.” For three years now the newest duo has continued to please everyone with the continuation of the Valentino label which as been synonymous with opulence, extravagance, and drama in the past.

In business since 1960, Valentino Garavani made his mark early; thanks in part to entrepreneurial skill of Giancarlo Giammetti the brand is still manna among European royalty, American socialites, and celebrities craving a touch of class.
