Valentino celebrated the launch of his virtual museum last night with a lavish party at the IAC headquarters. Stars and socialites alike showed up to support the famed Italian designer including Sarah Jessica Parker, Daphne Guiness, China Chow, Claire Danes and Hugh Dancy, Genevieve Jones, Rachel Zoe, Michelle Harper and Olivia Palermo. The Valentino Garavani Virtual Museum showcases over 300 of his designs along with sketches, his inspirations behind each piece and a few fun anecdotes about some of his iconic designs. “I see as part of my legacy,” Valentino told WWD, adding that he hopes his first virtual museum will also serve as an educational tool for young designers.
