About me

Since I remember I have been passionate about fashion and all about clothing, image and creating stuff from an idea. I can´t say how much experience do I have because is something that I have been doing all my life. Over last year I have worked for Dolce & Gabbana at the Christmas Season opening event in Harrods as quality controller and Stylist Assistant and at the opening in the new store in Old Bond Street as a Quality Controller and dresser. In Ralph & Russo on their Haute Couture Atelier where I was part of team on making dresses for the Cannes Festival and the Paris Haute Couture Week AW 2017/2018, including Bella Hadid, Jessica Alba, Zendaya, Janelle Monae and others, as clients. Also at the London Fashion Week SS2018 to be part of the Emporio Armani team and Isa Arfen, as seamstress and stylist for last fitting and alterations. Also in 2013 I ran my own business, called “Dissatrela”, in Spain about Flamenco Dresses, where I used to do basically everything on the making process since the drawing up to the catwalk, including patterns, cutting, fitting and customer service. I was finalist on the Young Fashion Designer Awards on the 2013 Flamenco Fashion Week in Sevilla, Spain (which is the most important in the world). I have skills on many other fields as I have always been a very curious, creative and active person who enjoyed working and volunteering in other roles as supervisor, tourist guide, craft teacher, etc. what made achieve useful abilities, either working on a team or leading it, customer service, administration and management.
