About me


My name is Martina Cotena, I'm 29, I'm Italian and I graduated in Fashion designer at IED Moda Lab Milan in 2008.  I'm a senior designer (fashion and graphic) and I have been working in the fashion world since 2005 covering different creative profiles in various fashion realities from the most diverse product types and work organization.  After 8 years I finish my collaboration with Alviero Martini spa – 1classe, an Italian brand, where I was Senior designer for men's collection for all categories of product, designer for beachwear collection and graphic designer. Now I’m working as a writer and graphic freelancer for Thefreak and for i also working as Teacher for english on-line course for Fahion design for Scuola italiana di Moda e stile. I am a curious person, versatile, creative and I love team work.
