To create authentic products we need to be connected with our passion and be able to properly work in a team.
I’ve seen companies with great products and story telling which are able to connect with consumers in a real way but eventually manage to sink a brand and ruin a team by not having enough awareness towards its ego.
Authenticity is a core value if we want to be credible in our role and with the products we create. Through this re-discovery we can contribute to make human relationships more sustainable and therefore more profitable inside our teams.

Most of the roles I’ve been given are because of my extrovert personality. Since the very beginning I was asked to facilitate and support creative teams with different work seniorities, cultures and genders. This has been a huge opportunity and a challenge at the same time.
Lack of creativity, frustration, identification, tight timings create a lot of stress in the creative teams. I felt the need of learning more about how to really support and be able to equip them with the skills/resources to overcome frustration and keep enjoying the beauty of creation.
We have been able to deliver many collections, but what’s the price for that?
Textile and the fashion industry are an amazing world, full of beauty, but now more than ever we need to be connected with our core values in order to bring our creations to the world.

Consultant and Counselor
Professional Advanced Counselor AssoCounseling (REG A1877-2016)
Bioenergetics and Gestalt approach with a playful and creative touch.

After a degree in textile and a BA in foreign languages and economics (Esperto Linguistico d’Impresa, Università Cattolica di Milano), I have been working since 2001 in the fashion industry covering different roles: from style office management to brand and product marketing. Facilitating and supervising creative teams, I felt the need to learn more about personal development, starting from myself.

I started my personal growth path in 2008, where I met different therapists from family constellations, Enneagram, bioenergetics, Gestalt, art therapy, meditation and mindfulness. In 2013 I attended a three-year master in bioenergetics and Gestalt counseling (SIBiG, Milano): an integrated approach that brings body, mind and emotions together. Graduated in December 2015 with a thesis on the playful and creative experience in the counseling process.

Today I work mixing teaching and counseling for the best fashion schools and companies, and I lead groups in curated locations where I help people to become more aware about their authenticity.

Executive manager, Counselor
Professional Counselor AssoCounseling (REG-A2465-2019)
Integrated Gestalt approach

After technical training in the textile and clothing industry, I started working in the fashion industry in 1994. Since then I experienced different functions: production, sourcing, merchandising, trend scouting, R&D, creative direction, licensing direction. There are two main professional experiences contributing to my learning: Diesel Spa (1998-2014) and today Safilo Spa.

In my journey, I have particularly refined the experience in the management and coaching of creative teams in innovation, design and brand fields and in the coordination of collection development projects, fashion shows and brand building projects.

My current product and licensing director role leads me to relate to the business and design teams of top notch fashion houses in the luxury and contemporary segments.

I started my personal growth path in 2011, where I met different therapists from Enneagram, NLP, Gestalt, art therapy, meditation and mindfulness. In 2015 I attended a three-year master in Gestalt counseling (Punto Gestalt, Mestre). I graduated in October 2018 with a thesis on how to know yourself through personality maps
