My name is Marianna D’Agati, I am 27 and I am from Florence.

I would love to introduce myself, having just in the beginning of February graduated with a Master’s degree in Creative Knitwear design.

I worked closely the Technical Production Manager of the Knitwear Factory Mely’s in Arezzo, for 4 mon


ths following all the process of production of my collection, from the technical sheets, to the trials of the stitches with different yarns, to the prototypes to the final garments.

During my Bachelor’s degree in Fashion design at the Academy of Fine Arts in Bologna, I spent one year at the Coventry University in London as part of an Erasmus project.
I continued to gather abroad and hands-on experience in my internship at Iris van Herpen after graduation and consequently worked on broadening my pathway during a one year Freelance collaboration with a Knitwear factory in Benevento, Maglificio Reme.
Getting closer to the Knitwear world, winning a merit-based full scholarship offered by Max Mara gave me the opportunity to study and complete my Masters degree.

In this moment I’m working as Knitwear Designer and Product Developer for Spazio Vitelli, in Milan.
