I was born in a country in the Apulian province, raised between women – my mother and my sisters – who have always loved to dress, talk about clothes and read fashion magazines. After attending high school, I said to myself that what interested me most was fashion journalism. So I initially decided to continue with literature and I attended classical letters in the Bologna University. But I never lost sight of fashion: I knew I wanted to dedicate myself after my three-year degree and so I did. I moved to Venice, where I still attend the master’s course in Visual Arts and Fashion at the IUAV University. The area that interests me most is the meeting point between fashion and literature, and from time to time I write fashion articles for online magazines.
THE CONCEPT OF YOUR COLLECTION?
My Archeologika project was actually born long before its actual realization for the final fashion design course at IUAV. During my years of study in Bologna, I had the opportunity to participate in two archaeological excavation campaigns in Pompei and Herculaneum. What impressed me was not only what I experienced, but also what I saw.
