Valentino Partner Slams Recent Couture Show On Facebook, Then Apologizes

Posted: Updated:

Honorary president of the Valentino Fashion House Giancarlo Giammetti got a little too Facebook-happy earlier this week slamming last month's couture show collection designed by Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, WWD reports. Giammetti typed that he was "just speechless" after seeing the line and that he was "not sad...just surprised....We have always supported the new designers and we love them, but this time we have to distance ourselves from this ridiculous circus."

Giammetti later deleted his comments due to an overwhelming response on Facebook and he told WWD the he and Valentino Garavani "are always supportive of the designers of Valentino, even if we don't approve of their effort to be cool at all costs. But we will always be [supportive] of them." The fashion house had no comment.

It seems that the fashion community has become a little too talkative via technology. Read about Marc Jacobs President's tweeting and deleting.
