Fashion & Accessory Designer, born 28 years ago in Milan, great Bauhaus fan. Research, exploration and knowledge are the key words behind each of my projects. My purpose, when I start to give shape to ideas, is to enhance the essential: paying attention to details, with the aim of making the project effective and functional in its totality. Since I was a child, I feel a strong need to be curious: what’s around that corner?
