Valentina Shah grew up in Rome and began jet-setting at a very young age. A noble upbringing exposed Shah to many iconic socialites and international stars early on, sparking an interest in fashion, and she further developed her innate sense of style as an international business development executive with global fashion companies. As a child, Shah would peek down on glamorous parties thrown by her parents, catch- ing glimpses of style icons like Sophia Loren and Robert De Niro. And her grandmother, a matriarch from Italy’s noble Caracciolo family, wore an impressive array of the era’s most gorgeous haute couture, including Shubert, Forelle Fontana, Chanel, Lancetti, Dior, Emilio Pucci and Yves Saint Laurent. Shah has served as an international ambassador for a who’s who of premium American brands—Elie Tahari, Rag & Bone, ALC, Cynthia Vincent, Mike & Chris, and more— and is now tapping her industry experience and taste for style to launch her own. A dream team of designers from labels like Versace, Max Azria, Dolce Gabbana and Armani, led by Shah, is turning out a modern collection with a European sensibility. Valentina Shah focuses on detail in the most modern form while maintaining a classic appeal. The collection embodies feminine sophistication while staying true to the needs of the modern woman.
