STILL LOVING VAL: Come New York Fashion Week, Valentino will be paid another homage with an exhibit, called “The Red Thread: The Inspiration and Passion of Valentino Garavani,” at the The Grace Building at 1114 Avenue of the Americas. What sets this apart from similar showcases on the retired designer, however, is the firm behind it, Samsung Electronics, making it one big tech-driven affair. “This is an opportunity for digital curation,” notes senior vice president and chief strategic marketing officer Steven Cook of the show’s five-room exhibition, the first in an ongoing Samsung Imagination Icon Series. Each room features a different part of the design process, from his inspirations to the atelier goings-on to Valentino’s impact on the industry, and will include his couture dresses and sketches as well as footage from the upcoming Matt Tyrnauer documentary “Valentino: The Last Emperor.” The exhibit will hit London Fashion Week after its Manhattan run.
