The great entrance of Keni Valenti Gallery with a image of a young Yves Saint Laurent painted by artist Javier Mayoral.

Keni Valenti Gallery opened its door with a fabulous exhibit featuring Yves Saint Laurent 
here in Miami, Wynwood Art District. Keni Valenti who is known best for his extensive vintage fashion collections which are often spotted on celebrities 
has been working in fashion for years and years.
Keni started his fashion career as a designer doing accessories for Betsey Johnson using recycled objects; from car parts to old clorax bottles. Fast forward through photography, flea market sales and inspirational shopping for top brands, 
Valenti now has showrooms in New York and Miami carrying an amazing fashion 
 inventory of several thousands of pieces. 
 His premier Yves Saint Laurent show includes photographs, lithographs, jewelry, hats and accessories. 
And if you are in Miami you must go to Keni Valenti Gallery...now a treasure secret place 
in the Miami Art District!

The show includes a priceless dusky blue 1959 Christian Dior Couture evening gown that was part of YSL’s landmark collection and you can see it in the video below.

And his big dream is transform his gallery in a Miami Museum of Fashion with thousands of pieces that  he has been collected from around the world and add some fashion history, anecdotes and
