Portfolio website

I specialise in Marketing of Fashion and Luxury Goods. I am a Masters in Fashion, Experience and Design Management graduate from SDA Bocconi School of Management, Milan, Italy. I have worked with some of the top luxury brands in Europe while pursuing this degree and post graduation. I also hold an MBA degree specialising in Marketing, which helped me with my first step into Marketing and Business Development. Over the years, I have accumulated varied expertise in Marketing, Research and Analytics. I have studied different markets and dynamics that have helped me shape an international perspective and understand the strategic side of the luxury industry. I look forward to simultaneously learning and growing within this industry.
