Valentino and his long-term business partner Giancarlo Giammetti have mapped out their next career — Internet pioneers.
The duo is getting ready to launch the Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum, a downloadable desktop application and the first of its kind from a designer of that caliber. Today, valentino-garavani-archives.org will go live, offering a short video teaser of the extensive, multitiered project. It will officially launch on Dec. 5 and give access to the world of the designer, who retired from his namesake fashion house in 2008.
Hermès is launching a Laundromat pop-up shop in NYC - dubbed Hermèsmatic - where customers can bring their old scarves to be dip-dyed by an expert. Get all the details on WWD.com. #wwdnews (📷: @donstahl)
