Valentino Retrospective Showing Exclusively in Brisbane
Valentino was the first couture house outside of Paris to be officially recognised by the French Government.
BRISBANE.- A major retrospective exhibition of the House of Valentino is being shown exclusively at the Gallery of Modern Art (GoMA), Brisbane from August 7 until November 14, 2010.

Queensland Art Gallery Director Tony Ellwood said ‘Valentino, Retrospective: Past/Present/Future’ incorporated a stunning array of Valentino Garavani’s haute couture designs from the late 1950s through to his final collection in January 2008, as well as recent creations by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli – appointed in October 2008 Creative Directors for Valentino – highlighting the future direction of this most esteemed fashion house.

Valentino was the first couture house outside of Paris to be officially recognised by the French Government.

‘The retrospective of 100 ensembles includes some of the most important haute couture creations originally shown in the exhibition ‘Valentino: Themes and Variations’ at Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris, in 2008,’ he said.

‘The exhibition explores Valentino’s techniques and recurring motifs such as ornamentation, the use of geometric and animal prints, frills, folds and pleats as well as the creative possibilities of volume, surface and line.

‘Garments worn by Hollywood stars and high society figures such as Cate Blanchett, Nicole Kidman, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, Elizabeth Taylor and others will be displayed along with the stunning black and white gown Julia Roberts wore to the 73rd Academy Awards in 2001.

‘In addition to a number of ensembles from Valentino’s noted ‘White Collection’ from 1968, the exhibition features a selection of signature ‘Valentino red’ dresses, including one from the couturier’s first collection — ‘Fiesta’, a strapless cocktail dress in draped tulle from Spring/Summer 1959.

‘The exhibition, curated by Pamela Golbin, curator-in-chief for the Fashion and Textiles collection of Les Arts Décoratifs, Paris, also considers the future design direction of the Valentino label with five recent creations from the House of Valentino’s new creative directors Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli.

‘We are honoured to be the exclusive Australian venue for this extraordinary exhibition that will engage followers of Valentino and fashion lovers from all over the country,’ Mr Ellwood said.
