The bags designer was born 27 years ago in Caprarola. She graduates with merit from the European Institute of Design in Rome and in 2007 she wins the Riccione Moda Italia contest in the accessories category. After having become Romeo Gigli personal assistant for the IO IPSE IDEM collections she is awarded by the Camera della Moda and Alta Roma a scholarship to attend a MA in the International City of Arts in Paris as “Best Italian Talent”.

She is also art director of the new brand Creative Art of Souls (Pondycherry), a leading company in the sector of ecological cotton, and she collaborates with export companies also in New Delhi.

During the APLF fair in Hong Kong she is awarded the “Best Bag Collection” prize for the second time.

On September 2012 she is selected to take part to the second edition of Vogue Talents Corner organized by Vogue Italia and Thecorner.com, a project aimed at the promotion of young international talents through the e-commerce.
