A unique insight into one of the most creative and romantic fashion
designers working today. When the Roman designer Giambattista Valli
launched his own line in Paris in 2005, few would have anticipated
the influence he would ultimately wield on contemporary design.
Lauded as the heir to the giants of twentieth-century Italian
fashion, Valli and his designs herald a return to romance and an
elegant femininity, melding a sense of fantasy with lean, modern
lines. Impeccably tailored, meticulously detailed, and luxuriously
crafted, his collections are crucial passages in contemporary
fashion history, attended by everyone from royalty to A-list
Hollywood celebrities. This book offers a behind-the-scenes glimpse
into the world of one of the most unique fashion designers working
today, with images of his design process and backstage views of
runway shows. The volume includes booklets with details of Valli's
lushly complex fabrics and clothing.
