Prior to marrying and moving in the USA, I worked in the European fashion industry for 7 years where I learned about professional apparel design and its manufacturing process. After I graduated from the Fashion Institue of Technology in NY, with a BFA degree in Fashion Design, I continued to expand my knowledge and focused on Concept Design including Tech Design for fit and pre-production samples.
I currently work as: Sportswear designer for Tifanja and the SwingDish Golf line, and Fabric Print designer for the famous British retailer Patternbank.
In the past I worked for, among others, Tommy Hilfiger, Macy's, Kayser-Roth, and Francesca Sterlacci.
