It’s a dream come true – a virtual showcase of hundreds of dresses by Valentino. Due to go live on December 5th, the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum will give the world access to the designer’s archives covering his fifty years in the business.

The site will feature three-dimensional technology providing an up-close experience. Each piece revolves and many will include photos, video and audio commentary. Also included in the virtual museum will be sketches, illustrations, ad campaigns and more. Download the desktop application and then it’s all at our fingertips, available anytime, and we can linger as long as we like.

Valentino told Women’s Wear Daily that this was something he has wanted to do for years. “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.”

Wow. What a gift!
