Something About Me
A section of my work from my atelier in Bond Street in the 90's.
Whilst growing up in Italy my tailoress Mother transmitted a deep love and a strong passion for couture clothing. Seeing that I had the skills of a well rounded couturier, she encouraged me to enrol on various fashion courses in Milan, Italy’s fashion capital. On completion, my Mother then suggested that I move to London to work as a tailor on Savile Row to increase my experience and expertise. I trained as a tailor under the prestigious Tommy Nutter, who had reinvented the suit during the 1960s, whilst simultaneously extending my qualifications at both the London Central School of Fashion and at Central Saint Martins. After graduating, I embarked on an eclectic career with my own atelier on Bond Street, a retail boutique in Sloane Square and ran my own design studio offering services to many international brands as a designer, product developer manager and consultancy in various roles of marketing and business strategy.
However, after all the wonderful and enriching experiences throughout my career, the passion at my core remains couture and tailoring. With the unlimited freedom to create new shapes, styles, proportions that are applied to the best fabrics and collaborating with seamstresses, tailors and other craftsmen from all over the world, it enables me to continually learn and improve my skills. It has inspired me to start my own brand so that I can recreate what I truly believe is the quintessential offering - a personalised, bespoke couture tailoring service blended with the advanced technology of today.
