A Legend Says Goodbye

12:42 PM

Valentino said goodbye to the fashion world he helped define Wednesday in Paris, reports Reuters. Last year his business was purchased by private equity firm Permira, and with it the last of the great designers relinquished day-to-day control to the global commercial industry.

Valentino's breakthrough came in 1962. Before dressing the likes of Uma Thurman, the influential Italian designer was impressing European royalty, Jacqueline Kennedy and Audrey Hepburn. Elton John was there with models, industry giants and fans to celebrate Valentino's career and witness his last walk the runway.

Here is his Spring 2008 Haute Couture Collection
