About me

I am an Italian/British Costume Designer and Wardrobe Supervisor with more than 20 years of experience in the Theatre and Film industry.

I started my professional path with Opera and Ballet at La Scala Theatre in Milan where I developed proficiency in costume making and vision in designing. I worked in opera, ballet, music videos, theatre, film and youth theatre in Italy, France, England and Canada.

I designed costumes for dozens of theatre productions, including Don Giovanni, La Cavalleria Rusticana, Tosca, Sweeney Todd, Lés Misérables, Macbeth, Hecuba, A midsummer night’s dream, Mnemonic, Dissocia, Animal Farm, Jane Eyre and I worked with award winning film directors such as Erika Errante and Sean Cisterna and a large variety of British and Canadian film productions.

My Work

With over two decades of experience in the industry, I have developed a keen eye for detail and a deep understanding of the nuances of costume design. I am comfortable working in a variety of styles and periods and am passionate about using costumes to tell compelling stories. As a designer who has lived and worked in multiple countries, I have developed a unique perspective on design and a deep appreciation for the cultural and historical context of different styles and aesthetics. I am also adept at collaborating with directors, actors, and production teams to create costumes that are both visually striking and emotionally resonant.
