Valli, inspired by “flora and fauna” this season, beautifully exhibited both a naturalistic, followed by a whimsical and fantastical couture collection on the runway that took place at a ravishing Sicilian theatre.  With floral being huge this season, Valli’s inspired theme divided the show into two very different yet collaboratively perfect looks. Valli opened the show with majestic shadowed blacks and whites with a fierce yet elegant incorporation of wild animal prints and scales.  His creative brilliance displayed intricate layers while maintaining elegance and perfection in the cut of his collection.  With darkness so brilliantly fabricated, a tasteful pant-dress trend swept the runway graciously.

In the second part of his collection, intricately woven and integrated flowers took viewers to a majestic garden. With such beautiful detail and precision, Valli’s sophisticated and fresh draping created depth allowing for a tastefully revealing amount of leg visibility. Valli’s color scheme and embellishments took his collection to a novel level of elegance and beauty.
