Valentino To Launch Virtual Museum Featuring 5,000 Images, 95 Runway Shows and More; Here's a Peek
When so much of the fashion world seems to be launching retrospective coffee table books and museum exhibitions, Valentino is cutting out the high price tags and long lines with a virtual museum. It's literally an entire museum dedicated to Valentino, but on your computer through a desktop application you can download online on December 5. According to a release, the retrospective museum, which spans 50 years of Valentino, would cover over 100,000 square feet if it were real. In addition to over 300 gorgeous dresses from the Valentino archives, the museum's content will include sketches, illustrations, ad campaigns, editorials and photos of events and memorable red carpet moments (Jackie O, Julia Roberts, etc). There's also a library of 5,000 images and 95 runway show videos.
