I'm passionate about fashion and about environmental and ethical issues. Therefore I feel very near to your philosophy and work. I'd love to collaborate in any possible way.
About me / About business or organisation:
I'm half German and half Italian (mother German, father Italian) so that I'm mother tongue in both languages, and thanks to my different study and work experiences abroad, I have also excellent language skills in English, French and Spanish.
I have a Master Degree in European Studies and I could achieve a relevant amount of experiences in the PR/ Fashion/ Sales and Communication field, during which I improved my very good analytic, research and writing skills, as well as my organizational and commercial abilities.
Right now, I'm attending an evening specialization course, 2 times a week, in Fashion Communication at the IED in Barcelona which trains to become professionals able to analyze and decode the different elements that accompany brands and collections as well as creating and communicating branding, in order to manage creative, effective communication plans and identify future social, cultural and market trends.
I've excellent communication and presentations skills. I always maintain a gracious and professional manner when communicating with people.
I would describe myself as outgoing, dynamic, hard working, creative and open-minded person who adapts easily to different surroundings and situations. I also feel very comfortable working in a team, and I put my high enthusiasm in everything I do with a detail and goal oriented attitude.
