You heard right! When I first read "Virtual Musem" I had the exact reaction you probably are right now... Like a, Really?...How!?.. & definitely a... OMG VALENTINO!!!... Then I watched this video. As an avid enthusiast, obsesseur (polite way of saying obsessed fashion FREAK!) and plain out LOVER of all things beautiful, red, feminine, ethereal and whatever else big words that describe VALENTINO it's only right I share this with you guys! This must be one of the most coolest and definitely fashion-forward things I've seen in a while!! It is, exactly how it sounds, an entire museum built in the virtual world and best part, all accessible with the click of a mouse.. In this virtual museum you will find over 300 stunning gowns from the Valentino archives and thousands of images from editorials, event photos, red carpet moments and exclusive sketches from the man himself! I am so excited for this and can not wait this to launch!
"I see it as part of my legacy. I am happy that thousands of students, young designers and fashion people will be able to see and study my work in every aspect of it, and in a manner easy and accessible for the younger generations. But it is also important to remember things of the past, to review the fashion that has shaped our lives. I would call it ‘Future Memory." - Valentino tells WWD
