Zitat des Tages von Valentino Garavani:
Unfortunately, the greatest photographers don't pay extreme attention to the clothes. If they decide to put a dress in a bathtub or in front of a cow in the countryside with dirt everywhere, well, the dresses come back... ready to be put in the garbage.
I love my beauty. It's not my fault.
I didn't like the '80s at all; it was a vulgar moment of fashion.
I am especially grateful that I have been able to keep my own style over the decades, in spite of the many changes that have taken place in the world of fashion and in its business.
Even as a young boy, my passion was to design, and I have been very lucky to be able to do what I have loved all my life. There can be few greater gifts than that.
I am always locked in my design studio.
I am happy that thousands of students, young designers and fashion people will be able to see and study my work in every aspect of it.
I hope people will say, 'Mr. Valentino, he did something for fashion, no?'
I have my favourite fashion decade, yes, yes, yes: '60s. It was a sort of little revolution; the clothes were amazing but not too exaggerated.
I know what women want. They want to be beautiful.
An evening dress that reveals a woman's ankles while walking is the most disgusting thing I have ever seen.
I like things simple.
