I’m Sofia, I’m 27 years old and I’m from Forlì.
I decided to go to London to start my work experience, after taking the short degree in Fashion design at Politecnico di Milano. I started at Haizhen Wang, first as an intern and then as production coordinator and sales, PR and design assistant. Then I moved to Wanbing Huang, where I worked as freelance designer.
Thanks to the 3 years I spent in London I had the opportunity to meet and know different figures of the fashion. Pattern makers and seamstresses were the ones that fascinated me the most. Their aim is to realize ideas: they look at a sketch and give it life making a real product out of it.
This is why I decided to go back to Milan, to finish my studies at Istituto Carlo Secoli where I did an MA in pattern cutting. Through this MA I acquired the knowledge to make a real luxury product out of my creative ideas.
