About me
ABOUT THE DESIGNER Growing up, Irene has constantly moved within different cities in Europe, in a vibrant and international surrounding. This paved the way to her insatiable curiosity, thirst for different experiences, extreme versatility and eclectic style. She graduated with a BSc in Economics and Management from Bocconi University, and made space for her creative side by completing a M.A. in Design Management at Central Saint Martins in London. She deepened her appreciation of the world of fashion and luxury via work experiences from digital marketing and buying at Louis Vuitton to Belstaff in Milan, London and New York.

She continues to travel in search of inspiration from different cultures and industries to incorporate into her future work.
