The final collection: Valentino Garavani

Valentino Garavani is the designer who created the much-respected clothing label, Valentino. Under him, the label became the epitome of elegance and glamour. When he retired in 2008, it was as though an era had ended in the fashion world. It even led to the making of a film called "Valentino: The Last Emperor". After his retirement, the label continued, but under different designers.

The final collection of Valentino's own work was the Spring/Summer 2008 haute couture collection. I also think that it was one of his greatest collections and I don't think I'll ever forget it. Here are some looks.
