Opening Saturday April 13 - June 8, 2013
Vogue Magazine, "W" and New York Magazine have called Keni Valenti the "King'" and for over 30 years he has been a designer and fashion expert and historian for the industry. Prada, Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Pucci, Cavalli, Dior, - name any fashion house and Valenti has had a hand in steering new design through his collection's perspective.
Ten years ago, the legendary gallerist, curator and all around art maverick Holly Solomon, telephoned Valenti having heard that he was collecting important fashion pieces. Valenti suggested to her the idea of a fashion gallery where fashion could be presented as art - and she said "that's BLEEPING genius". The "Pop Princess and the King" were unable to launch that idea in New York due to her untimely death, but with a few years later and a few thousand design pieces added to the collection, Valenti essentially moved the 20th century down to beautiful Miami and into the art world of Wynwood.
The greatly anticipated Second 2013 show opening will take place on Saturday, April 13, from 6-10 at Keni Valenti Gallery, 2612 NW 2nd Avenue, Miami, FL 33127 RSVP: email@example.com or facebook- keni valenti gallery

Walk down NW Second Avenue near 26th Street, and you'll come across an unassuming storefront with a painted portrait of Yves Saint Laurent. No big signs. No flashy lights.
But none of that is needed.
There's plenty of flash within the four walls of the Keni Valenti Gallery. Walk through a shiny silver curtain and get transported to a world of all things glam -- and a space that appears to be more fashion history museum than art gallery.
The first of its kind in Miami, the Keni Valenti Gallery is playing host to a revolving fashion exhibit. That's right -- every eight weeks a new collection will be revealed, with all of the items for sale. The first up is everything Yves Saint Laurent, and Valenti appropriately painted the entire interior the same Tiffany blue as the lining of all of YSL's signature hats. "It makes you feel like you're inside of his head, doesn't it?" he posits. It sure does.
You'll find everything from jewelry and hats to bedsheets here. "I have 10 times as much as what you see of Saint Laurent pieces, so I had to really be selective and think about and curate it, which was really difficult," he continues. Looking upon each mannequin (which is also painted Tiffany blue), Valenti has taken the time to style each head-to-toe, and given each one wholesale-style price tag.
