Giambattista Valli was born in Rome in 1966. In 1986 he enrolled at the European Institute of Design in Rome, and the following year he specialized at Saints Martins in London. Since 1988 the various collaborations with the most important Maisons began, from Roberto Cappucci to Fendi, from Krizia to Emanuel Ungaro. It will be the historic French maison Ungaro that will consecrate him on the altar of international Haute Couture. After the experience at Ungaro, in 2004, Giambattista Valli debuted with a surprising independent collection, presented on the Parisian catwalks, a city he has never abandoned since.
