She is the designer of her own brand Margot, born in 2007: she creates jewels such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets but also bags. Every collection has as protagonist a different kind of flower: violets or daisies for examples.
-I love Stella McCartney and Nina Ricci style. But also I like also the brilliance of Sandra Backlund and design by Philip Treacy. But if I find some clothes with a style close to mine
I buy no matter the brand. I love also vintage style.
-How and when did your passion for fashion and design start?
-When I was a child my mother always used to dress me with beautiful clothes and I lived surrounded of gardens in old english style, old houses, my grandmother’s dresses and so on. I think that this has been important to develope my aesthetics sensitivity.
-I create jewels with true flowers and resin, semi-precious stones, pearls, paste of glass. Every single object is hand made. In last season collection I introduced also some leather or fabric bags with true flowers details. In the future I’d like to create also other kind of accessories in order to create a Margot life-style.
-Which is your creations style? How do you describe your collections?
-My style is delicate, romantic, feminine and sometimes retrò. The fundamental concept is to return to the nature, to the originality and the value of hand-made.
-Sometimes colours inspire me, some other time a color-matching: maybe colours of what remain in the dish when I finish to eat, or of beads that are casually near to others. If I like these matches I take a photo. The inspiration comes also from a particular style as Victorian period or the hippie “flower power” philosophy.
-Are your creations on sale? How?
-You can find my creations in some shops in Milan, as “Suite 123” and “Fiori nel tempo”. But I sell mainly in Japan, where people appreciate taste and quality of made in Italy creations.
Then two times a year I present my collections during special events.
