A cocktail party was held in honor of Valentino’s 50th Anniversary at IFC mall atrium on Friday 31 August, 2012. The event was held to showcase a project initiated by Valentino’s creative directors, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli (who both attended last year’s Valentino fashion show in HK..post to come next on this), in celebration of the glamorous brand’s 50th anniversary.
While no signature Valentino red was evident, the celebratory capsule collection showed off predominately animal prints, whether leopard or zebra print and very much tailored for the women-who-lunch crowd. Of these such women, well-known Hong Kong names such as mainland actress Fan Bingbing, Pansy Ho, and Candy Lo were all in attendance.
Items at the exhibition are currently being stocked at the Valentino boutique in IFC.
