"We'll mist up every time we pass our coffee table...Halard does an exquisite job in bringing Valentino's masterful works to the page, and Golbin...provides concise, reverential text to complement the arresting images." "LA Confidential""This tome includes stunning photography of fabric samples as well as lively, backstage images of fittings minutes before models walked out onto the runway." "Florida InsideOut""Original sketches, behind-the-scenes runway images, photos of fittings, and the atelier at work, as well as his ad campaigns over the years, celebrate this legenday talent in all his glory." "Southern Accents""Perfect for the most glamorous person in your life..." "Private Clubs Magazine""The remarkable 50-year career of Valentino, founder of the first couture house to be recognized by the French government outside of Paris, is given the coffee table treatment in a lavish new book...""The new book is a collector's item and a keepsake for every devoted fan of Valentino and the fashion industry.""The book isn't just a retrospective, but the essence of Haute Couture."
