– How did you get into the world of fashion?
Ever since I was a child, I loved the idea of making clothes for my dolls. As a teenager, fashion appeared in my life as a business opportunity-I started traveling and learning about the world as a model. After this fascinating and electrifying journey, I began to study, graduating in Fashion Design at the Istituto Marangoni in Milan. And from that moment a new adventure in my life began as the creative director of Sveta Milano.
