Valentino SpA is a clothing company founded in 1959 by Valentino Garavani. Today the company is a part of Valentino Fashion Group. Valentino is headquartered in Milan. Valentino's international debut took place in 1962 in Florence, the Italian fashion capital of the time. Valentino's first show at the Pitti Palace was welcomed as a true revelation and the young couturier was submerged by orders from foreign buyers and enthusiastic comments on the press. After the breakthrough show in Florence, Garavani started to dress the ladies of the international best-dressed crowd such as his acquaintance from the Paris years Countess Jacqueline de Ribes and New York socialites Babe Paley and Jayne Wrightsman. In 1966, confident of his client base, he had one of his greatest triumphs, an all-white collection, which became famous for the "V" logo he designed.
