Remember way back in October when I shared the Giambattista Valli capsule collection for Macy’s?
Well this post is also about Giambattista Valli, but a completely different side of his growing empire—namely, his role as a couturier.
That’s right, after being invited to show for the first time during this past Couture Week, Valli has just received the rare honor of being officially recognized as a Haute Couture designer by the Fédération Française de la Couture. (Don’t know what I am talking about? Check out my post on Haute Couture)
This is kind of a big deal—and not just because it is always a big deal to receive this honor. Typically a designer will show 5 times during Couture Week before being bestowed the title, making Valli’s single showing extra special.
In honor of this, I thought it fitting that I share some of my favorite images from the first Giambattista Valli Haute Couture Show:
What do you think of the designs?
