Valentino Haute Couture Spring 2013 Details
My love for the Valentino Haute Couture Collection knows no bounds. I was so happy to have stumbled upon the live stream by complete chance and will confess to having watched it twice. Interesting to note: according to Tim Blanks review '...the duo [Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli] enumerated the human cost in the show notes that sat on everyone's seats' One such labour-intensive 'artisanal effort' was a tulle and gauze dress, scrolled and enveloped with a lattice cage of rolled piping, which -as noted by Blanks- 'According to the notes, it took 500 hours of hand-rolling to produce the piping.'
