The Legend That Is V




I'm in heaven. The Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum is soooo out of this world. I mean technology these days is insane. Now you can see the amazing works of a Fashion Icon without so much as leaving your room, (partnered with Google) and it's absolutely FREE! 
This Virtual Museum has everything, full color 3D images of hundreds of his remarkable dresses & video commentary for some of his most memorable pieces, personal photographs, 180 fashion shows, Ads, & sketches.
He has these rooms in the Themes & Variations gallery that gives you the feel of  Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory experience except instead of candy it's all about fashion. It's like a fashionista's idea of heaven. My fav rooms in this gallery is the black room, the Embroider room witch has detailed images of some of the elaborate embroidered gowns, & the Red room with MANY of his famous Red gowns . Another one of my favorite features in this Museum  is his Creating Couture, A Master Class, where he gives commentary on some of his most elaborate pieces. Oh the beauty, the elegance, the history. The Museum has so many other rooms, I can literally get lost in this. If you haven't already downloaded the app, here is where you can get it The Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum
I think every Iconic Fashion Designer should have a (Free) virtual museum, could you imagine ...Chanel, Dior, Vuitton, Lagerfeld, Ford, oh I'm getting goose bumps just thinking about it.
TAKE THE TOUR!
