I love couture week as much as fashion week. Certainly one of the most traditional fashion houses in the business of haute couture is Valentino. Whether the collection is inspired by the pre-Raphaelite period or the 1960s, the clothes are always works of art.

Now we’re going to get a double dose of Valentino! Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli have announced there will be an additional couture fashion show this year. Usually the couture collection is shown in Paris in November. However, this year will also feature a runway show in NYC in December. The most impressive thing is that the collections are completely different from one another, showing the creative power of the duo behind the maison.
