A great collector of Italian design masterpieces and curious towards all objects, her work is based on observation and research, criticizing the potential of an objects form, function and attitude. Across discipline approach be-tween fashion, art and design and an added interest of old and new, traditional and contemporary, aid her to develop and play freely with ideas.
