Valentino Garavani has left an undeniable legacy, defining the unique world of couture for most of his design career. In July 2007, a three-day celebration in honor Valentino’s 45 years in fashion was commemorated. Two months later, Valentino retired.
Even to this day, he still wakes up with a new dress in mind. “I love to draw. I love to design,” he says. “When I am alone in my room, when I am alone somewhere, I still make drawings,” said Valentino on the Oprah show.
However, he admits to one thing. “Finally today I can say it—I am proud of what I did,” he says. “But I am proud, too, to stop at the right moment, when the room was full of people.”
But, there is still a dream beyond the legacy that this fashion legend still has to see to. “I always see ballets in my mind,” he says. “I would love to design for the theater.”
