In March 2005 Giambattista Valli started his own line with Italian licensee Gilmar.
Among his early designs was a tiny yellow dress composed of fluffy layers of lace and an ivory one covered in pale rosettes. His more realistic creations included a beige shirtdress with black brushstrokes at the hem and a blouse with arm openings which expanded to the waist. The latter garment was tucked into tailored gray shorts.
