When the sweethearts of the Valentino digital department dropped me a mail somewhere in February; I remember first paralyzing… Then I squeaked and pinched myself multiple times as I could barely believe the great news that had just reached my digital mailbox.

I was ‘cordially’ invited to attend the Valentino Fall Winter 2017 runway show and for the occasion Valentino had kindly scheduled a fitting moment. Read: I was allowed to spend an entire hour in the Valentino treasure chest, the one place where fashion dreams come true – MAJOR SQUEAK again!

You should’ve seen me; I was like a kid in a candy shop, with a smile from ear to ear while being surrounded by the finest and most beautiful embroidered lace gowns and studded bags. To my delight I was also entitled to borrow one of the many mind-boggling pretty dresses to attend the show in total Valentino style. Making a decision on what to wear had never been so tough! 

Obviously I opted for colours and decided to wear one of Pierpaolo’s delicate eye-catching gowns in contrasting pink and red. I paired it with beautiful red sandals foreseen of a bow and arrow… very appropriate for the entire Valentino experience.

The show was hosted on Sunday the 5th in the amazing venue of the Hôtel Salomon de Rothschild; stay tuned as I’ll soon be revealing my favourite silhouettes of the fall winter 2017 collection.

On this very memorable Parisian Sunday I also had the opportunity to briefly meet Pierpaolo Piccioli himself. I was absolutely star struck at first, but this enigmatic, grateful and humble individual made me feel instantly at ease… it was such a warm encounter and all so ‘human’, not entirely a common given in the peculiar but wonderful world of fashion.

My love for the Italian fashion house has been supersized and I always have been a big Valentino girl at heart (I remember my worldwide hunt of the very first edition of rockstud Valentino shoes) but after my warm encounters I’m now totally smitten with all things Valentino!
