About me

Passionate about visual arts since ever, I’ve started my career by developing a strong interest in fashion styling, examining how the personal style of rockstars in the 1970s influenced social and cultural heritage and was a key to their success. Since 2016 I have been managing my own brand, working in all sectors, from the development of the collection to handling the e-commerce. I have achieved remarkable results and a strong understanding of the fashion industry, developing the ability to work resourcefully within a range of budgets and time constraints. I believe that now is the time to make a leap forward for my career and I am ready for new challenges and opportunities.
