I miss her too! Her one and only Haute Couture show for the house - nearly 5 years ago - still is worlds more interesting and memorable than any show that the current duo has ever produced. She was so perfect for Valentino and I really wish she would have been able to stay there.

Thank you for posting this video! So good to watch it again and remember all the reasons I loved it before haven't changed one bit!

Just re-watching this show upsets me - what a waste of talent! If this was her first couture collection for Valentino imagine what she could have done in subsequent collections.
The unusual cuts, the subtle details, the imaginative use of embellishment, the beautiful fabric choices, her unique, very Italian, but extremely feminine touch.

Such a beautiful show and poetic show, I really loved her work on volumes and embellishments. What a pity she didn't develop her full potential for the brand.

Also, the show had the most magical soundtrack, fits the mood just perfectly.

Watched this interview with her again, and I just can't get over how much I love her!
And how insulting that she was fired for not using the archives when her entire mood board is covered with archival Valentino tear sheets!

^Thanks so much for these Chase, I'm so in love with the woman too!

The way she speaks about her her work is so inspiring, you can really see a great passion in it. Why on earth would they replace her with the new "designers", I'll never know.
