Founded in 1960 by Valentino Garavani and Giancarlo Giammetti, the Maison Valentino is a protagonist of international fashion. The Maison Valentino plays a major role in the luxury division through tradition and innovation, a necessary combination for a creative industry that generates the sense of beauty. Under the creative direction of Pierpaolo Piccoli, the Maison's creative director since 2008 and sole creative director since 2016, the brand has gone through an impactful creative evolution. An aesthetic, contemporary vision and the excellence in the execution, are the guidelines of the industrial process and of the artisanal and handmade workmanship that are entirely produced in the historic Atelier of Piazza Mignanelli in Rome. Valentino’s fashion is displayed through the Haute Couture and Prêt-à-Porter lines and through the Valentino Garavani accessories lines that include shoes, bags, small leather goods, eyewear, scarves, ties and fragrances.
