Valentino is the fashion house created by Valentino Garavani. He
was born on May 11, 1932, in the small town of Voghera, Italy. He
learnt his trade at the Ecole des Beaux Arts and Chambre Syndicale
de la Couture Parisienne in Paris. His first apprentice jobs were
with both Jean Desses and Jacqueline de Ribes. He started the fashion
house Valentino in Rome at the beginning of the 1960s. After this
he displayed his first show in 1962, and became world famous by1967.
Because this was the year he premiered the 'White Collection', with
massively successful "V" logo. He is most probably most
famous for designing Jacqueline Kennedy wedding dress (albeit it
with the Greek tycoon Aristotle Onassis, and not JFK). He he also
had notable friendships with Steve Rubell and Andy Warhol. Valentino
received a Lifetime Achievement Award at the 2000 American Designer
Awards in New York.
