About

Creativity is much more than just a skill you list on your CV: I believe it is a way of life. I have tried to bring my creative energy and talents to everything I have done, from my first school class work to my first ever free lance display project with a major international fashion brand in Japan. I really enjoy to bring that energy, and the words that go with it wherever I go, whatever I do. I am extremely enthusiastic about exploring always new opportunities and feel confident to add value to everything I touch or everyone I meet. I can say I am a Creative with a substantial experience in the fashion industry. In a wide range from Luxury to Upper Casual and High Street brands. Skills are paramount to cover the industry at 360 degrees, from visual merchandising store design, training modules, business development, project management, marketing. events planning e management. I am also an influencer and an entrepreneur in the entertainment buz. I have been lucky to grow up with an International mind, I speak Italian, English and Japanese, I know my expertises but I know also that I want learn something new every day. Known as visionair, I usually tend to think out of the box. And most of risks I have taken were the right moves. Would you like to make a change in your lifestyle?
