I graduated from KOEFIA International Fashion Academy in Rome (Italy). After working in the fashion industry for several years, I realized that fashion isn't what I pictured. Unfortunately, the fashion industry is one of the major polluting industries globally and has a significant negative social impact, and I didn't want to be part of it anymore. So in researching a sustainable business model to make a living off and minimize my impact on the environment, I came out with making my clothes and transforming them into digital sewing patterns available for an affordable price to everyone. Now it's been years that I wear only me-made garments. I also recycle almost everything - buttons, zip fasteners, old clothes, and fabrics- and primarily use natural ones for my sewing projects. The majority of my sewing projects are made not according to a sketch. My creative process starts with the fabric scraps I already have, mainly manufactory leftovers. I match them and imagine what they can become - paying attention to reducing the waste to the minimum.
