My name is Bettina Khiroun.
I have recently completely the master's course in Creative Direction at Polimoda in Italy.
Throughout my studies, I was able to further my enthusiasm and passion for fashion with classes such as technical drawing, inspiration boards and patternmaking. I gained great insigh


t on fashion and contemporary art, fields which I am particularly fond of. Fashion is both a reflection and a witness of our society. I believe it to be a true art form, far from being superficial or frivolous as it is sometimes blamed to
be. Clothes are means to create dream, amazement and express oneself. They can reveal more about us than words can. Colour is an inseparable aspect in my creations as they show an important part of my personality which I want to transmit through my style. I am very dedicated to my projects and have always been meticulous and cautious in regard
to details. I like working in a team as having a second opinion helps me to challenge myself, my
ideas and my work. I have always been independent and responsible.
