Valeria Ribichini


Starting as an intern, I eventually became the Creative Director of the women's line Miss Sixty within the Sixty Group. Throughout this journey, I gained significant skills in design and development in the world of Sportswear, collaborating with various company departments, supervising all creative and development stages of the collection, and achieving notable results for both the brand and my professional growth. I designed pieces for runway shows presented in six editions of NYFW, also handling the brand's styling alongside prominent professionals such as Victoria Bartlett, Patty Wilson, and Kathy Grant. Additionally, I managed important collaborations and special projects for Harrods, Bread&Butter, Renault, Marcolin, Morellato, Coty, Coccinelle, and Barbie Mattel. In 2014, I launched my own mid-to-high-end women's clothing brand, Musae, showcased at the White Trade Show in Milan and distributed in select European boutiques. Simultaneously, I began working as a freelancer, both in Italy and abroad, handling creative direction, product coordination, and styling for planned and fast fashion brands such as Tally Weijl, Pianura Studio, All Saints, Fornarina, and I am.
