Valentino Garavani built his net worth as a world renowned designer for over 45 years. Valentino Garavani was born on May 11, 1932 in Voghera, Lombardy, Italy where he became interested in fashion while in primary school when he apprenticed under his aunt Rosa and local designer Ernestina Salvadeo. He moved to Paris and studied at the École des Beaux-Arts and at the Chambre Syndicale de la Couture Parisienne. In 1960 Valentino left Paris and opened a fashion house in Rome on the posh Via Condotti with the backing of his father and an associate of his. Valentino's international debut took place in 1962 in Florence, the Italian fashion capital of the time. His first show at the Pitti Palace was welcomed as a true revelation and the young couturier was deluged by orders from foreign buyers and enthusiastic comments on the press.
