About

Fashion oriented, I started my carrier as a designer , with an approach based upon research, analysis and the evaluation of data and ideas. I am enthralled by the whole creative process, from inception to completion. The evolution of garments,
from simple sketch to finished product, is something I l

ove to be part of.
I'm always very focus on everything relating Image.

I grow up in the fashion system, working on vibes, suggestions and visual arts that capture my interest and in the same time I started to move my attention on Styling that is actually that perfect combination of all the things i was already interested in.
I enjoy working as part of a team but, when necessary, have leadership qualities, which I have used in community work.

I usually work with dummies starting from researches, design, vintage items, from fabrics to the final creation, searching for volumes and shapes. I have good time management skills, which help me to be very professional in all I do.

hoots, the runway shows and the advertising campaigns.

I work the hardest in the context of fashion shows. Choosing outfits and accessories, ordering the ensembles, and making last-minute alterations as needed are usually also part of the job. It is my responsibility to see that each model is assigned a flattering and appropriate outfit; When my creative director, Olivier Rousteing, proposes new ideas and creates mock-ups of apparel for coming seasons, i'm usually one of the first to give critical reviews and feedback. My expertise is useful in determining how versatile an outfit will be, or how well it may fit a range of body types, that's why i'm also involved in all the technical fittings with the creative director.
During the last 12 months when the House has been acquired by Mayhoola Group, i have also been in charge of the jewelry and belts department as designer director.
