Determined, enterprising passionate designer with a proven ability to translate new ideas into concepts and develop fashion trends. Broad working knowledge of different materials, leather processes and different embellishment techniques with a strong focus on Haute Couture. I am currently the creative director and designer of my own brand Nicola Bacchilega which I have established in 2016. Throughout my experiences, I developed a deep knowledge of fashion embellishment focusing on personal experimentation also applying ceramic into fashion.
