Valentino struck out on his own in 1962 after having cut his teeth at Jean Dessès and Guy Laroche in Paris.
Dubbed by WWD "The Chic," the couturier dressed some of the most stylish women in the world, from Jackie Onassis to Audrey Hepburn to Elizabeth Taylor to Babe Paley.
"My thanks go to the thousands of people in fashion, who have followed me in these years and to all of those who have supported my work and to my collaborators that have helped turn my career into a success," Valentino's statement concluded.
