About me

I have always been fascinated by the idea of analysing the garment as an architectural piece. This curiosity of understanding and deconstructing it increased much more as I was looking at my sister’s works in her tailor’s lab. At the age of 8, I realised my first patter and I made my first garment. From that moment, for the next 10 years, I worked at my sister tailor’s shop, both as a pattern-maker and as a machinist. During this time I have experimented a lot of sewing technics, I have conducted a consistent research about suits’ finishing and I have used several kinds of sewing machines. All of this, with a strong knowledge of fabrics and fibres, has been refined during the BA course in Fashion Design that I attended at NABA In Milan. The academic system pushed me to be as quick and precise as possible to meet deadlines and graduate with the highest score. I have also been hired by the college, during my last year, as technician and tutor’s assistant, in order to teach other students and help them to build their own collection
