History of Womens Red Valentino Shoes
One of the most famous names to have ever emerged from Italian fashion, Valentino Clemente Ludovico Garavani – more commonly known as simply Valentino – first launched his legendary fashion house in 1960. He quickly became known as the first-choice dresser for royalty and VIP figures, designing clothes for Sophia Lauren and Jackie Kennedy, and later creating wedding dresses for Jennifer Lopez, Anne Hathaway, Courtney Cox and Princess Madeleine of Sweden. For those of you who don’t quite have the budget or the royal credentials to splash out on a custom Valentino original, RED Valentino may well be a far more sensible option. Launched in 2008 as a spin-off line to cater for the younger urban market, RED Valentino is still imbued with the same classic and timeless spirit of the iconic designer’s best work, but now infused with a new modern edge which captures a fresh youthful elegance.
