I am so intrigued with old Hollywood glamour (it is my favorite modern era style of dress) that I literally squealed at the sight of each look. The sophistication and femininity of this collection. I loved nearly every look!

While Mr. Valli said the inspiration encompassed sentiments of the late 60s, early 70s, it it said that his mood board contain vintage photos of Diana Vreeland during the 30s and 40s.Yes, I feel it!

He definitely hit the hammer on the head.
