Ladybrille Media Group, Inc. had the honor of being a media sponsor for the screening of Valentino, The Last Emperor at Delta College in Stockton, California. The event was organized by Delta’s Fashion Director Leslie Asfour (cousin to Gabriel Asfour of Three Asfour) and its fashion students and was hugely successful. Matt Tyrnauer flew in from Los Angeles for a special Q &A session and to tell Delta College students and the public in attendance about the film.
The film has now been annoucned as one of fifteen films shortlisted for an Oscar award in the Best Documentary category. Kudos to Trynauer and of course Valentino.
“VALENTINO THE LAST EMPEROR is a feature-length film on the legendary designer Valentino Garavani in the wake of his exit in 2008 from the company he founded in Rome more than 45 years ago. Produced and directed by Matt Tyrnauer, Special Correspondent for Vanity Fair magazine, the film is an intimate, engaging and very funny fly-on-the-wall exploration of the singular world of one of Italy’s richest and most famous men. The film documents the colorful and dramatic closing act of Valentino’s celebrated career, tells the story of his extraordinary life and work, and also explores the larger themes affecting the fashion business today. But at the heart of the film is the unique relationship between Valentino and his business partner and companion of 50 years, Giancarlo Giammetti.”
