About me

 

I started as a costume designer for 'Circo Nero', a project inspired by Twisted Circus, which was travelling between the most well-known Italian nightclubs. A few years later, I joined a fashion course in London where I became passionate about the intricate craft techniques in the garment making process. Following the course in London, I then worked for three years as an apprentice at Connock & Lockie, a British bespoke tailoring company. From there, I joined Ralph & Russo's haute couture team in the construction and tailoring department. With the ultimate aim of creating my own brand, I decided to focus on my designs and clients and worked as a freelance tailor and designer. My experience eventually led me to the prestigious Chanel in London where I am currently working as a tailor. All these experiences have given me an excellent understanding of the creative process within the fashion industry. I am always striving to achieve more for myself and those working alongside me. Driving my own small company and projects I learned the importance of deadline With The ability to be patient, reliable and to work well under pressure. I always priorities the work discussed with the team,I strongly believe that the team is one of the main key points for a successful design or project.
