In a few days Valentino will be honored by the Fashion Institute of Technology for the Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion.
Valentino must be relaxing and working on his tan because a RARE vintage friend in Venice sent me this photo of the TM Blue One in Venice. Wish we are ALL there, eating mozzarella, having fritto misto at Il Gatto Nero and drinking lots of wine... instead of dieting and getting ready for the whirlwind of New York Fashion Week immediately after Labor Day - and did I mention, also getting ready for RARE vintage's upcoming special sale of Valentino haute couture from 1960 to 1990 on 1stdibs.com and on our RARE vintage blog?? Who said being in Venice was so fabulous when we have an amazing collection of Valentino Couture here in New York?! Now, that is truly fabulous!
