I have been looking everywhere for any runway images from Valentino shows in the 80's and 70's. With his retirement looming, I am interested in exploring his work before the late 90's (which is all I can seem to find online). I would greatly appreciate any images or sites.
13 Jul 1967, Rome, Italy --- Rome, Italy: Fashion designer Valentino, casually dressed in slacks and sweater, fingers his new autumn-winter creations hidden by paper covers and ready for showing in the Eternal City on July 15.
12 Feb 1968, Rome, Italy --- Spring's cape silhouette is smartly punctuated by this model from the new Valentino collection. The designer, one of Jacqueline Kennedy's favorites in Rome, shapes the cape with a high stand-up collar, seaming detail on the front and small shiny collar. It's worn over a matching black silk dress.
ca. September 1968, Rome, Italy --- Model stands in the Palazzo Doria, the Brazilian Embassy, in Rome wearing a Valentino cape and diamond belted dress with a Valentino fox beret and suede boots by Dal Co for Valentino.
ca. 1968, Rome, Italy --- Models in the Rome apartment of Cy Twombly, wearing long white evening suits by Valentino, which are minimally ornated with pearls and lace at the cuffs, the shoes are by Rosetti for Valentino; the man's suit has a white pajama embroidered waistcoat, and inside the apartment is a Roman marble head, drawings by Twombly, and Rococo chaises.
