The book is conceived as a celebration of a young fashion designer in the early years of what is sure to be a long career, approximating with printing effects and a unique narrative some of the mystery and detailing associated with brand. The visual narrative itself provides an instructive look at the process of design from an artist who is at once comfortable with developing technologies and respectful of traditional approaches to fashion design.. Illustrated with over 300 sketches, textile patterns and photographs. The design of the book's exterior case and interior layout feature a number of custom printing effects--varied papers, inserts-- that distinguish it from the conventional treatment of fashion monographs, and look-books. Booklets provide behind the scenes details, with images of the process and handwork as well as close details of the fantastic textures and elaborate materials that define the Valli look. An intimate behind-the-scenes look at the development of the runway show and a gatefold with a full catwalk view will give readers the feeling that they have been invited to sit at the front row during the show.
