Valentino - Virtual Museum

Posted by Liv Siddall,

There’s a fascinating ongoing debate around the future of galleries and museums and the role of digital counterparts (as evidenced at our In Progress 2011 conference last week) but I was surprised to find Valentino’s much anticipated ‘virtual museum’ not just a techno-gimmick, but a treasure trove of one of the world’s most prolific fashion houses. Not just concentrating on the clothes, Valentino has seen to it that nearly every person, technique, era and muse has been credited in this realm that, once inside, is a bit like playing Doom. Download it from the Valentino site and have a wander about, it’s pretty cool.
