I consider myself a closeted fashion designer.  While I do create product  and participate in online and studio sales, most of the time I enjoy the creative free space that fashion offers me.  I do it for the interaction with materials. The process of draping and embellishing is an organic process that is very inspirational.  I find that sometimes my accomplishments need no end result, can remain unfinished and taken apart,  
they can be ephemeral.

While purchasing the fabrics used to make La Schiarpa dress, at

Fratelli Bassetti Tessuti, Rome 

the salesman said to me,

 

"Signorina, tu scegli i tessuti come se fossi Botticelli!"

"Young Lady, you choose fabrics as if you were Botticelli!"
