Rosalba is an award-winning Royal College of Art MA Textiles graduate specialised in knitwear design and innovation, and currently based in Milan, Italy.
After completing a Fashion BA at Politecnico di Milano, where she developed her graduation project in collaboration with Loro Piana, she gained valuable professional experience in the Italian fashion industry.
Rosalba is a conceptual technical thinker: she likes to challenge the technical boundaries of knitting
to create innovative and refined wearable pieces.
In each project she focuses on a specific structure and its properties, discovering unexpected applications and using them as opportunities for conceptual development.
Combining strong inspirational research with advanced fabric experimentation she strives to achieve smart and imaginative design solutions.
