Summary

Sono una high-end streetwear fashion designer.Prima di ritornare in Italia, mi occupavo della gestione dell'ufficio stile dell'azienda di famiglia, gestendo l'intero processo creativo, di design e coordinando il processo produttivo. Mi sono specializzata nello sviluppo del surface design dei prodotti con focus su maglieria, di decorazioni per l’applicazione di ricami termo adesivi e di stampe tessili (allover-placed).
Sono molto attenta alla progettazione di concept di prodotto originali attraverso la realizzazione di figurini e presentando le mie creazioni con moodboard. Durante il mio processo creativo e di design utilizzo abitualmente l’intera suite di Adobe CC Collection, e specialmente Illustrator, Photoshop e Indesign.
