Dear friends I’ll tell you a story, my story! … Read all about it!
A few years ago … in 2008, I graduated from IED European Design Institute and since then I have tried in all ways to get into a fashion house in Milan.
I didn’t have direct contacts so I started to send email, email, and email even at full blast, customizing them with declarations of love to my favorite brands …
I just wanted to gain an internship …. EVEN for FREE! For me it was really important to learn and grow as much as possible.
I send résumé via e-mail, fax, letters, bouquets, special project targeted to the brand …. I even waited at the entrance of a famous Maison for almost 12 hours….
But nothing happened. I didn’t get no interviews.
Believe me, the problem was not my résumé (with logo, colorful, appealing, etc. ..), the problem was that no one had ever bothered to read it, even when I sent the flowers! I would have expected an email at least!
Once out of the IED, I worked in several design studios and later at a fashion house in Liguria …. however my Fxxxxing dream (get in Milan “the fashion City”) had not realized yet.
Over the years I have specialized in fashion, leather goods and fur industry.
In a few days I am going to launch my Fur Brand LADY FUR but what about the scoop?
Well, I am going to meet personally all the best designers I wanted to meet years ago (remember when I sent the CVs and nobody read it neither assistants..). I will introduce my collection and My Brand, “my baby”, directly to them!
SUZY MENKES, DONETELLA VERSACE, ILARIA AND SILVIA VENTURINI FENDI, VALENTINO AND GIANCARLO GIAMMETTI, DIEGO DELLA VALLE, RENZO ROSSO, FRIDA GIANNINI, GIAMBATTISTA VALLI, MANOLO BLAHNIK, KIM JONES, JEAN PAUL GAULTIER, FARIDA KHELFA..ALL IN ROME AT THE IHT CONFERENCE.
Thanks to IFTF International Fur Trade Federation, which sponsored me, I could realize my first collection. I got the invitation to attend to this exclusive event because I and my team YFT we won a workshop in Copenhagen about the theme “social media marketing young fur traders” ….
A special thanks to the young fur traders and Gorana Stojanovic.
I’M SO EXCITED. IT SEEMS LIKE A DREAM ….. THAT GOING TO COME TRUE!
I will keep you updated!! Cross your fingers for me ….
