About me

Born and raised in a family which main activities evolved around the field of tailoring for over 5 generations, I can affirm that it runs through my veins. I grew up in the atelier around fabrics, machines, but more importantly people that animated the passion and engraved deep into my heart and personality, thereupon I have been sewing clothes from the early age of 14. Following my dream of being a part of the fashion industry, after High School I have moved to Italy to work in a production house that at the time had contracts with labels like Burberry, Salvatore Ferragamo, Ermanno Scervino, Prada and many more, thanks to the experience I have learned the process of the technical part of fashion. Returning home I have decided to continue my family tradition and help local people with my skills in designing and making, but that didn’t last for long since I got the opportunity to move to London in 2015 for a BA Degree in Fashion and Textiles, which now I am currently on my last year. I usually draw my inspiration from everyday moments, risk and comfort, melancholy and cheerfulness, people’s emotions play a subtle but important part in my daily life
