Valentina combined her belief in the individuality of every woman with her passion for the stage. "On-stage or off," she wrote, "it is essential to know a woman's physical and psychological equipment as well as . . . she knows it herself, in order to create a dress that will have meaning in relation to her as a woman. . . . Every dress should identify a personal style through the elements of personality which it accentuates. Otherwise, it cannot be called a piece of art." She was particularly known for using hoods, large fur hats, dolman sleeves, pleated skirts and blouses, and scarf handkerchiefs.
