The newest trend for fashion houses is the online virtual museum. Thus far, Valentino is the only company to do this. Valentino’s Virtual Museum, which is currently available for download, allows you to examine hundreds of his designs, original sketches, and runway shows. The Museum also provides candid interviews from the designer and a history of the luxurious fashion house. Something fantastic about the Virtual Museum is that it has been carefully designed to look like an actual museum, almost like a new addition to the Costume Institute in New York City. The only thing I do not like about the Valentino Virtual Museum is that it is NOT REAL! I wish this was a real museum so I could go see these gorgeous couture gowns, the huge editorial photographs, and see how Valentino’s style has grown through the decades.
What do you think of the Valentino Virtual Museum? Do you like the idea and think other fashion houses should think of creating their own versions? Are you like me and wish this was a real place?
