Back in December 2011, fashion legend Valentino Garavani launched the first ever 3D fashion museum focusing on his five-decade couture and ready-to-wear career. Allowing anyone with internet connection to be immersed in the history of the design house with thousands of images of sketches, illustrations, advertising campaigns, editorials, fashion show videos and red carpet pictures, the site has now added an editorial slant.
Each month, the website will feature “Valentino’s Words,” personal, hand-written notes from the designer himself, as well as “Mr. Blasberg’s Questionnaire” in which society and fashion writer Derek Blasberg will invite Valentino muses, industry insiders and fashion icons to answer a series of personal questions about their insights on fashion and life in the fashion lane.
To kick it all off, Academy Award nominee Hugh Jackman is featured as Blasberg’s first interviewee. On a more visual level, Carlos Souza, longtime Valentino ambassador and fashion industry insider, takes viewers behind the scenes of the Valentino brand via his “Instaglams” (@ValentinoInstaglams), where he’ll be capturing the glamour of Valentino’s monthly happenings.
