STORY

Main foto color.jpg

“Everything you can imagine is real” 

 

I have looked at fashion from many angles.

I have been a creative director, fashion designer, illustrator, and print designer, with a thorough understanding of technical aspects.

All these different perspectives allow me to understand and execute every step of creating a collection,

providing a total concept and guiding the whole process from start to finish.

 

I challenge myself and those around me to think deeper, go the extra mile, and create something that goes beyond.

My work is known for my focus on long-lasting designs in the mid-to-upper segment,

resulting in durable strategies that naturally incorporate the client’s mindset,

creating a recognizable identity and a vision that will last.

 

I am always looking for ways to meet new challenges, to learn, to exchange ideas and to explore. 

If you think we're on the same page, I'd love for you to get in touch.

 

See you on the other side!
