Valentino is an Italian fashion brand founded by Valentino Garavani. Valentino's first collection was launched in 1960, and his designs quickly became known for their feminine silhouettes and use of luxurious fabrics. The brand gained worldwide recognition in the 1960s when Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis became a fan and wore several Valentino dresses. The Valentino Red dress, in particular, became a signature of the brand. Today, Valentino remains one of the most iconic and influential fashion brands in the world.
