About me

I am a young creative professional born in Milan, who graduated two years ago with a merit scholarship in Visual Communication Design (BA in Advertising and Communication) and a major in Art Direction. After I graduating, I decided to start my professional experience in the fashion world with an internship at an important Fashion House with such a rich history. During my first year of experience within the brand, I worked across lots of roles, really developing a convergent skillset. Moreover, in the last year, I had lots of other experiences in this field that gave me the possibility to boost my skills while broadening my cultural as well as technical competencies. A few months ago, I moved to London to start an intensive course in Fashion Styling at the London College of Fashion that I completed recently. If I had to describe myself in three words they would be organized, precise and determined.
