Valentino to show Haute Couture AW15 in Rome
Taking a celebratory break from Paris
In the current spirit of fashion houses moving from their usual show locations, Valentino has announced that it will not be showing its Haute Couture show next July in its regular home of Paris, but take things home to Rome.
The AW15 Haute Couture show will take place in the Italian capital, where the brand houses its atelier, on July 10 in celebration of the opening of its new flagship in the city's Piazza Mignanelli, near said historic headquarters overlooking the Spanish Steps.
Valentino will then resume its usual slot in Paris, showing its SS16 Couture collection back in the French capital in January of the following year. The brand is also planning an event in New York in December to mark the opening of its Fifth Avenue boutique, where a special couture collection will be presented.
