Versace - Alexander McQueen - Costume National

Design & Creative Consultant
Menswear / Womenswear / Accessories

As a creative lead for luxury brands, my international portfolio spans two decades. Currently Senior Design Director at Versace, I've previously worked with Alexander McQueen and Costume National as well as Jay-Z, Rihanna & Bat for Lashes.

I combine fashion design, art direction and brand identity with my sartorial background to achieve a 360° vision; working with multinationals such as Kering and Capri Holdings. Transforming iconic global fashion brands drives my passion to elevate and develop their aesthetic and identity.

Using leadership and innovation, I convert a bold vision and disruptive ideas into dynamic brand signatures, resulting in outstanding commercial success and unique pop culture moments.
