As promised my review on the first of the three fashiondocumentaries I´ve got yesterday. Valentino, The last Emperor, from 2008.

A late review, but never the less a fascinating glimpse of the glamorous world of the famous italien couturier,  Valentino Garavani, who is devoted to beauty of all kinds. He is known to do very feminine and romantic dresses.

The film follows Valentino and his inner circle throughout various events and mainly takes place around the preparation for the celebration of his 45 years anniversary.

It shows his lifelong personal and professional relationship with his partner, Giancarlo Giammetti. But the best part for me was to be able to see the cou- turiers workingprocess from design to the final  fashionshows. It is a very fascinating process, where everything is handmade.

The documentary seemed genuine, because we also got to see the challen- ges that he and the people around him has to deal with. It is hereby recom- mended.
