Valentino Spring 2014 RTW Collection by Italian designers Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli featured an inspiration from Rome opera. Their Spring collection at the Paris Fashion Week was very romantic, grand, beautiful and impressive with an underlying Roman heritage that lingered on their works in the fabric and craftsmanship. The Valentino woman who walked the ramp had a serene look and resembled a historical feminine portrait as the accessory and hairstyle perfected on each model who walked the ramp.
