From the Publisher. A unique insight into one of the most creative and romantic fashion designers working today, exploring the process and imagination that drive his lavish work.

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. The book offers a window into the work of an artist at the height of his creative powers—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 that allow readers to accompany the designer on his creative journey. The volume includes booklets with details of Valli’s lushly complex fabrics and clothing.
