I would like to do something serious, I don't say more serious than fashion

Valentino's final collection. The last great name from the Golden Age of Couture retires. And tells you what fashion is.

I think my favorite is the black dress with the short white jacket with the split down the back with the black bow. The pink coat is amazing, but the white jacket -- that's something I can actually see wearing. Beautiful stuff.

Utterly gorgeous stuff. Truly an artist.

Absolutely gorgeous, and utterly classic. (Except for the oversized safari helmet, not sure what he was going for there.)

Deja - I think Valentino was inspired by watching the dancing mushrooms from "Fantasia".
