THE LAST EMPEROR

This colourful 2009 documentary explores the world of Valentino Garavani, his business and his relationship with his business partner Giancarlo Giammetti in the run up to the 2006 Spring/Summer Collection in Paris.  It also reflects on the changes in the fashion industry and how these effect the designers.  But the stars of the show are without a doubt Valentino's five pugs, who even get their own individual seats on his private jet - worth watching just for that, but also for the insight into this extraordinary 45 year career.
