Valentino’s Co-Creative Director Departs, Looking Back At Maison’s Best Fashion Moments

Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pierpaolo Piccioli

This week, Maria Grazia Chiuri has left her role as Co-Creative Director after 17 years with the brand and 8 in her role as Co-Creative Director.

Pierpaolo Piccioli has been appointed as the brand’s sole creative director.

Together, Chiuri and Piccioli transformed Valentino, breathing new creative energy into the Italian fashion house and rocketing the brand back to the forefront of fashion.

Dior is expected to soon announce Chiuri’s appointment as the house’s new creative director, ending months of speculation over who would take the creative helm at the brand after the sudden departure of Raf Simons last year.

We can’t wait to see what the next chapter brings both for Valentino and Dior, but for now, we’re revisiting some our our favorite Valentino moments that we’ve previously covered.
