Born in 1986 in Bolzano, Italy, Valentina Modica has always been very fond of contemporary art and fashion. Willing to pursue a career in fashion and to hone her skills, she moves to Milan in 2005 to attend the 3-year course in Fashion Design at Istituto Marangoni: in 2008, she takes part in the exclusive event sponsored by Mercedes Benz to launch the new GLK car, occasion in which Istituto Marangoni’s team is awarded the first prize.
After graduation she moves to London to attend a short course in Menswear and Styling, and then shifts to Paris in 2010, where she works in sales and retail for Maison Martin Margiela and then joins Givenchy as collection developer. Interested in working close to customers, Valentina decides to focus on sales and marketing, while at the same time, she attends a 6-month training in pattern making in a Parisian atelier. In 2012 Valentina leaves Givenchy to work for Damir Doma as Production Manager, enhancing her competences and product knowledge. She currently works for Louis Vuitton as Senior MRTW Product Manager: in her role, she leads the knitwear and jersey team.
