Haute Couture is not the exclusive domain of the French.  The Romans had a very healthy Haute Couture industry famously fronted by Valentino, as well as, Tiziani, Capucci, Schuberth, the Fontana sisters, etc.  The tradition still exists and I will actually be attending the Alta Roma shows next month following the Parisian Couture shows.  Make sure you follow my Twitter and Instagram @CameronDecades for the latest from the runways of both Paris and Rome.  I will also be in London and Milan for the men's shows, too.  So I promise eye candy for all the sexes. 

Speaking of sexy, I wish you could feel this cranberry silk velvet Valentino Haute Couture scoop neck jumpsuit with coordinating jacket trimmed in organza.  The original owner became close with Valentino and Tiziani in the late 1960s while visiting her daughter who was attending boarding school in Rome.  This chic American woman would coordinate mommy-daughter time while getting outfitted for the season by these legendary Roman couturiers.  A jumpsuit is always in style and today the talents behind Valentino, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccoli, continue the Valentino legacy and actually did some fab jumpsuits in the current RTW collection.  I am such a fan of their work!  Have the best of both worlds:  wear modern Val accessories with this luxe vintage Couture jumpsuit.  You will be the height of chic. Now that's Alta Roma!
