Changes For Valentino?

Besides the latest campaign, nothing new might have been productive from the house of Valentino. So before any new collections from the house's latest crop of designers, Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli, I really can't help myself but start dreaming about the future for the big label.

And what I meant by future here, means a very, very faaaaar-fetched future.

You might or might not already know that the fresh gradute from Central Saint Martins(CSM), and winner of L'Oréal Professionnel Award 2008, Alithia Spuri-Zampetti, has landed a job on the house of Valentino. She's the first talent from ITS (International Talent Support) to have a job opportunity for Valentino. Normally it's Lanvin, Antonio Marras, or Roberto Cavalli.

What I'm pondering on, is how involved CAN Alithia's ideas be with the new designers, with the note that both Maria Grazia Chiuri and Pier Paolo Piccioli has been with Garavani Valentino for years, before poor Alexandra Facchinetti got into the picture.

So as a fresh graduate, and with the recent emphasis and celebrations for young designers, can Alithia Spuri-Zampetti be a little hint for the future of Valentino?

What do you think? Too early to tell?
