I was basically doing Art before I did Fashion.
Spending most of my time when I was young in a museum getting my hands dirty with every material I could get. I was doing pottery and paintings as well as roll printing and wood carving and even more.
That means that I was expressing myself with my hands way before I was thinking of this becoming my actual job. After deciding that I want to do Fashion I graduated from High School and did some Internships in private Tailoring companies.
Then I started my 4 years of Bachelor in Fashion Design and afterwards I was granted an exhibition of my Bachelor Editorial in a museum. I was lucky to find a school that was not very commercial but artistic so I felt quite at home even if I was facing the high demands. In the end I left the school with very good crafting skills and honestly very low commercial skills.
I realised that I was missing something when I was Interning in a couture label called Lever Couture in Berlin. Because I always strive for self-improvement I decided to also evolve some industrial and commercial knowledge.
This is how I ended up in beautiful Milan.
I started my Master in Fashion Design at Domus Academy and got to meet a lot of very skilled and also very differing people especially in terms of their style of work. I was collaborating with and designing for brands like Sansovino 6, Max Mara, Fondazione Gianfranco Ferré and Salvatore Ferragamo. During that collaborations I was developing collections or communication strategies and even sustainable solutions for these companies.
After that I got the chance to work for Jil Sander, a great company with even better people who made this a very memorable time.
