MILAN — There may be a global economic slowdown, but Valentino is stepping up the pace of its expansion.
Stefano Sassi, chairman and chief executive of the fashion brand and Valentino Fashion Group's ceo, remains bullish about the mid- to long-term growth of the brand, where he hopes to double sales over the next five years. He also sees plenty of potential for accessories, more stores and the penetration of new markets.
