Valentina is an Italian fashion designer, now living in the Boston area. Formerly a fashion photographer, she combines her experience in different fields of visual arts to design and create uniquely colorful and stylish handbags and clothes.
She had the opportunity to showcase her work on several runways along the East Coast (Providence, Boston, NYC, Atlantic City etc), and Europe (Paris Fashion Week 2015, London).
In 2016, she co-founded Nstilla, a Waltham (MA)-based brand of bags and accessories, all vegan-friendly, featuring original prints inspired by Italy (The ROMEntic Collection), and made in limited editions.
At Styleweek September 2017, Valentina will present a new collection of handbags and garments, after a 2-year hiatus as a clothing-designer. The collection will be a mash-up of the Italian spirit that characterizes her brand and a whimsical take on Victorian fashion and lifestyle.
