IMAGE GALLERY: Valentino to launch virtual museum

Valentino will open up his archive of 5,000 images of dresses, illustrations and photographs plus 95 fashion show videos to the public, as a downloadable desktop application next month.

The Italian designer and his long-term business partner Giancarlo Giammetti will launch the “Garavani Virtual Museum” so that students, young designers and others in the industry can study every aspect of Valentino’s work. Valentino said he sees the museum as a part of his legacy.

The desktop application can be downloaded from December 5 at

    Look forward to the archive of images that will be available to view, although from judging the preview, the concept of the virtual gallery still needs more work to be inline with a luxury brand such as Valentino. The 'museum' seems like something done in Google SketchUp.
