About me

Milan// Florence// Leghorn Born in Tuscany, I entered the Fashion Designer diploma at Urban Valdera (Pontedera 2006). Meanwhile I had the first experiences, a stage with consecutive experience in the development product office at Aigner as junior designer (Peccioli 2007). These raised in me the desire to know the whole textile and design world. I achieved the certificate of Clothes Confection Employee (Florence 2008), in ASPI school organized by the greatest Tuscan firms of the field and Cna Feder Fashion. During these years, I developed experiences with boutique and flag ship stores, so that i could acquire further information on the clothes marketing commercialization. In 2012 i worked in a new project as assistant head designer for the emergent Guen (Florence 2012). In the mean time, I took part in a collective of young Tuscan people (Adameve 2011) that cooperates in many levels in the field of fashion developing: trends research and small collections. I collaborate as co-founder and head designer, developing a capsule collection for the collective.
