About

Highly dedicated( British-Italian ) RTW Junior Designer, currently based in Milan (IT). For three years in the field of Fashion Design (Rick Owens - DROMe),I now cover the position of Junior Designer, focused on RTW & VIC custom-made collections, this made me aware of all the design and delivery phases of a collection (from design department to communication and showroom departments). I am an enterprising person full of initiative with the aim of being able to grow within a new working reality capable of expanding my potential in the field. I come from studies in Plastic Arts and BA in fashion design (Polimoda), I have extensive experience in both aesthetic (design) and material research and ability to give shape to given inputs in the field of fashion design, with great ability to work both independently and in a team.
