Ermalinda’s Fashion background started at a very young age. She was just 4 years old when her aunt who had completed a successful fashion career working in the design studios of Valentino in Rome began to pass on her skills to the young girl. Her dolls became her mannequins as she created garments for them from Valentino fabrics. Ermalinda’s working career spanning more than 20 years has included designing jewellery collections for well known international jewellery houses. Her fashion career has taken her to many exotic & remote places to study the art of fabric design, creating natural colours & hand embroidery. Her focus is to create timeless pieces rather than fashion so it can be worn year after year.
