Portfolio file

Hello, I hope this finds you well. My name is Mathilde Castello Branco and I have had a long career as a fashion designer and artistic director. I have always worked for French fashion houses, but have travelled extensively in Europe, Asia and North America. I worked alongside Alber Elbaz at Lanvin, where I was employed for 10 successful years. I also worked at Hermès with Martin Margiela and later as artistic director for Azzaro, princesse tam tam and Weill. Nowadays, I'm concentrating in part on creating personal collections, but am also interested in working internationally as a fashion designer and consultant. I am flexible as to whether this would involve one-off assignments abroad or relocation. I'm very comfortable revisiting and maintaining a brand's singularity and enjoy working as part of a team alongside designers as well as the different departments required for a company's strategy. I would be delighted to talk to you about my career and professional aspirations. Please find attached my CV and contact details. I’m very much looking forward to hearing from you. Best wishes, Mathilde
