“I’m an Italian fashion designer, writer, sewing teacher, image consultant and personal shopper!

My passion was born when I was just a child, thanks to my grandmothers, both seamstresses: my fun was making clothes for my dolls with their fabric scraps! When I realize a dress, I start from an inspiration, then, it becomes an idea, the idea becomes a project and the project becomes a real dream.

The biggest gain of my work is satisfaction and happiness of my clients. I believe a lot in the quality of the products as I believe in the attention to the customer, that’s why every dress I made is a unique, exclusive piece with its own personality, able to enhance and express the person who wears it.

I think that fashion is not a generalized standard, but an individual expression in the society, a powerful means of communication and a visual representation of ourselves.

Each of us is different, so everybody should look for his own style and express himself for what he is and what he wants to communicate to the world, without following pre-set canons of beauty and trends.

My mission is to help every customer to valorize herself and to find her perfect outfits or to realize the dress of her dreams.

“Don’t follow fashion, follow your fashion!”
