Born in rome, giambattista valli arrived in paris in the early 2000s, becoming the artistic director of the fashion house emanuel ungaro after having proved his worth in italy at capucci and fendi. very quickly feeling like a parisian and falling in love with the city and the know-how that reigns there, he decided to create his brand in 2005 with his own ateliers, and obtained the official title of a couturier at the end of 2011. interview with giambattista valli:i do my job today thanks to paris. paris inspires me enormously and the french support me greatly. paris is half of my life now. in fact, it’s funny because there are many people who say: “ah! it’s the italian designer who came to work and do his show in paris, and all that…” actually, i’ve lived in paris for years now, i’m a parisian couturier and i claim to be that because paris gave me so much. his dresses are popular around the world due to their romanticism and creativity, and the designer continuously balances between purity and extravagance.interview with giambattista valli:it’s always two opposites. it’s a line, like a line on paper, like a cut with scissors, very clean, and next to it there are a bunch of flowers, petals and pleats... alongside his own brand, he also worked as the artistic director for moncler gamme rouge for 9 years.valli is gaining more and more customers around the world, attracting both the ladies and the young generation. interview with giambattista valli:i find that today for couture, my clients are younger and they buy a bit like collectors.in summer of 2019, for one of her wedding dresses, charlotte casiraghi wore a valli gown.and today giambattista valli has become the latest designer to create a collection for h&m, the swedish giant, revealing it during a fashion show in rome before the sale on-line and in selected shops on the 7th of november.
