Vanessa is available for work

I am a passionate and accomplished creative leader with over 16 years of experience in the fashion industry, specializing in sustainable and premium/luxury womenswear. As Head of Design for pioneers of circular and fair fashion, I lead a team of designers to create innovative and engaging collections that reflect the brand's identity and values, while meeting the needs and expectations of the customers.

My core competencies include design strategy, multi-product design, trend research, colour and material management, and creative direction. I have a track record of delivering high-quality and commercially viable concepts, from sketch to production, that balance creativity and innovation with sustainability and ethics. I also have extensive knowledge and experience in textile research and development, focusing on sustainable and innovative materials. I am driven by a mission to contribute to a more responsible and conscious fashion industry, and to inspire and empower others to do the same.
