I'm a creative pattern cutter with over thirty years of experience. After graduating from the Istituto Secoli in Milan [Since 1934 Istituto Secoli has been setting the benchmark in Italian excellence in teaching fashion], I made a ton of experience in various companies in Italy. In 1995 I opened my own company with my brand, where I took care of every step from the design to the creation of the garment up to the shipment of all orders.
So, with twenty years within and after the previous, I have acquired all the experience necessary to pass my knowledge to others and give useful advice about fashion. In 2015, I moved to London where I work as a freelance pattern maker for several companies, including Couture and Leather Clothing (tailored).
