Freelance senior woman shoe designer
I love shoes and all the hard work to make them! I'm working in Italy for Via Spiga but I'm looking for new opportunities. I would like to work for a luxury brand and test my skills on a high-level market. I feel confident I can manage the whole process of conception, birth and development of a collection; my dream is to work for a fashion house where the aesthetic contents are fundamental as well as feasibility and marketability.
Milan - Italy
