Valentino Garavani born in Voghera in 1932. When he was a child, he only accepted the most expensive things. Her mother said that he was a spoiled child who demanded sweaters and blazer custom-made to his specifications. He founded the Valentino Fashion House in 1962, in Rome.
Valentino has been one of the most important Italian fashion houses but with the passage of time it has managed to rejuvenate and access to a younger audience.
