Valentino Spring 2013 Couture - PCW

"Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli threw down a gauntlet with the ravishing Couture collection they showed for Valentino tonight. We all knew that beauty like this came at an exalted dollars-and-cents price. But the duo enumerated the human cost in the show notes that sat on everyone's seats. The most extraordinary outfit in the presentation featured layer upon layer of organza, embroidered with butterflies and birds, the whole lot wrapped in a tulle cage scrolled with crepe piping. According to the notes, it took 500 hours of hand-rolling to produce the piping. And that was just one of the outfits that featured the effect." -
