We begin at the Valentino atelier in Rome.
“I love what a perfectionist he is and his great love of beauty. They had to shorten the train of this dress for Violetta’s entrance because it was too long for her to walk in. There was a lot of discussion about this train!”
Chiuri: “It was a real challenge trying to find the exact shade of color Mr. Valentino wanted.”
Piccioli: “Are we sure we want to shorten and decrease the tail? Never big enough for Violetta’s entrance.”
