Italy is synonymous with art and beauty, artist like Michelangelo, Leonardo Da Vinci, Botticelli, Caravaggio, to name but a few have placed our country right at the centre of aesthetics and to me, fashion is just an extension thereof. A stunning, elegantly dressed woman or a stylishly attired man are indeed works of art and that’s why I love fashion so deeply.
When you travel to Italy, elegance, style and grace are abound in the landscape, the architecture and the Italian people and I am proud of my Italian heritage and adore living in Rome. The passion, the vibrancy and the energy of my city cannot be found anywhere else, the food is delicious, the music divine and the people of Rome are just very special.
My mother has always had a sophisticated style and taught me how to dress well at a very young age. Luckily, I was my father’s little princess and whenever my mother would bring me shopping, he would gladly oblige and let her buy me whatever outfit she wanted, much to my delight. Throughout my childhood, I had the best of clothes, always looked immaculate and both of my parents soon realised that their little girl would have a future in the fashion industry. Even at a young age, I was fascinated by colours, fabrics, different types of textiles, shoes, jewelry and makeup and I soon developed my own sense of style. To say that I was hard-to-please when it came to my clothing would be an utter understatement, I would never wear anything that I didn’t like, much to the dismay and yet delight of my parents. I knew what I wanted and I knew how to get it!
I spent all of my spare time trying on clothes, experimenting with accessories and makeup, dragged my friends out shopping and would often also sketch and draw my very own designs or indeed get out the sewing machine and make stylish clothes for my dolls.
When I was a teenager, I started buying fashion magazines, watching fashion events on TV, spent more time in exclusive boutiques and fully immersed myself in the world of fashion. Attending the first fashion event live was one of the best days of my life and after that day, there was no doubt that I had found my niche, my passion, my life.
Looking beautiful is important to me, especially now that I spend so much time at fashion events. Of course, even the most beautiful top models will tell you that looking stunning requires a lot of time and effort and is about a lot more than just elegant clothing. Beauty comes from within and that is why I put a lot of thought into what I eat, spend a lot of time working out at my local fitness centre and ensure that I live a healthy lifestyle.
To my friends I have long been the “fashion and style queen” and I have often helped them to dress well for various occasions. I know that they trust my sense of style, that I have an eye for grace and charm and that I always get it right. My parents, friends and acquaintances have often told me that I know more about fashion and style than any of the prominent fashion journalists and that I should put my expertise out there for the world to see.
That is why I decided to set up this website, to share my fashion tips, connect with fashion industry VIPs and to provide the visitors of my website with up-to-date trend and fashion news.
I have been thrilled with the response to my blog and website, amazed by the growing number of readers and I vow to continue to bring you the very latest, very best from the world of fashion and beauty.
