2008 USA Movie
Documentary
A look at the life of legendary fashion designer Valentino.

Valentino Garavani, Giancarlo Giammetti, Nati Abascal

A story of friendship, a retrospective, and a look at haute couture as business: we watch Valentino Garavani (1932- ) and partner Giancarlo Giammetti from preparation for the 2006 Spring/Summer Collection in Paris to a July 2007 retrospective of Valentino’s 45-year career, which included dressing Jacqueline Kennedy. The film documents a year of work, shows, business changes, and decisions. We follow a creation from sketch to runway: he’s always in pursuit of beauty. We’re in Paris, Rome, and Venice. He receives the French Legion of Honor medal; his acceptance speech brings tears. Reporters ask when he’ll retire. Is the Roman retrospective his career’s finale? Cue Puccini.
