His first pre‐collection, presented in a small group of reporters at Altaroma in July 2008, has received encouraging feedback that led her to continue.
His first real collection has been introduced at the Soho House in New York in May 2009.The idea of her own line of clothes made from vintage fabrics of renowned designers such as Gianni Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Fausto Sarli, Pierre Cardin, Lancetti, Irene Galitzine, Givenchy, Valentino, André Laug, Ungaro, Scherrer, Clara Centinaro and many others, comes from the passion for fashion that draws on past to project into the future: not any traditionalist taste, just the need to rediscover, through colors, patterns and prints, a typical Italian creativity that seems to have run out right in between new generations of designers. The quest for textiles inspired her and played a fondamental role in her job. The fabrics are for her a source of inspiration. She handles every aspect personally according to her own implementation of the clothes and all the processes of brand development: the passion for photography makes her deal withimages of her collection and with models' choice.
