Nobody improvises as a couturier. Over the years, Giambattista Valli has made a name for himself in the highly select world of Haute Couture, and is now firmly established there.

From a young age, Valli showed exceptional talent and passion for fashion. As a child, he sketched television “soubrettes” and even persuaded his grandmother’s dressmaker to create clothes for his first mannequin, a Barbie doll. This early fascination laid the foundation for his future in the world of haute couture.

His journey into haute couture began to take shape when he had the extraordinary opportunity to work with renowned designer Roberto Capucci. This experience became a turning point for Valli, allowing him to celebrate women through his art, supporting and empowering them with each creation. He found a profound passion in the vibrant colors that breathe life into his designs.

Years later, Giambattista Valli arrived in Paris to acquire his first experience in Haute Couture with Emanuel Ungaro. Thus, he started to dream about building up his own Maison to become a bridge that brings all this culture and passion from all the people who work around, from the past generation to the future generation.


After settling permanently in Paris, he decided to make his dream come true and launched his brand in 2005. He began by designing ready-to-wear collections, before naturally moving into Haute Couture a few years later. That’s how after presenting his first Haute Couture collection in 2011, he joined the Chambre syndicale de la haute couture as an official and permanent member.

To join the Chambre Syndicale de la Haute Couture, a Maison must meet very specific criteria. The workshops must be located in Paris, the Maison must hold two Haute Couture fashion shows per year, and all creations must be handmade. By coming to Paris decades ago, Giambattista Valli wanted to be a part of this French fashion excellence.

Indeed, the French term Haute Couture itself signifies the pinnacle of fashion excellence, where each design is meticulously crafted by highly skilled artisans, tailored to perfection, and adorned with exquisite details. The union of tradition and innovation, along with the sheer artistry involved, makes Haute Couture a realm of endless possibilities and boundless creativity.

The heart of Giambattista Valli’s Haute Couture lies within an intimate Atelier nestled in the heart of Paris. Here, passionate and patient couturiers bring to life precisely thought-out drafts, meticulously hand-sewing each creation. It is a labour of love that demands hundreds, if not thousands, of dedicated working hours. But for us, it is more than just stitching fabric; it is an art form aimed at unleashing the true essence and beauty of every woman.

Fashion is an art form that revolves around shapes, lines, and structure. For Giambattista Valli, it goes beyond mere decoration; it’s about creating unforgettable silhouettes that leave a lasting impression.
