Stefania effortlessly encapsulates the passion and finesse that is always so closely identified with an Italian fashionista but is universal in the way that she has developed her creativity and is cosmopolitan in the way that she works. Working under and following the influences of the best fashion designers, make up artists and hair stylists in the world, she established herself as a formidable force in her industry in a remarkably short amount of time.
Born and raised in Tuscany, her dream was to become a painter. Always magically transforming friends and family, it was clear that she was gifted not only in art but also in fashion. At the age of 18, she headed to Germany to start working with the international fashion hairdresser Toni and Guy. After working for several years as Head Trainer and Technician, and ultimately Creative Director of the world renowned Toni and Guy Academy, she decided to go it alone and impose her own style and will, by beginning her freelance hair and make-up career, opening several successful businesses along the way- including her own Cosmetics company.
She started her career working very closely with internationally acclaimed hair stylists Guido Palau and Anthony Mascolo on international runway shows. Her first venture into the world of photography was with the famous italian photographer Oliviero Toscani. With her experience and drive, she has built a reputation for creative and artistic work with exceptional levels of detail. Innovative and Avant-garde in the way she expresses her art, she always understands the clients wishes and needs and more then meets their expectations. Her down to earth demeanour, astute level of aestheticism and knowledge of the creative process- which she can fluently translate into English, Italian, Spanish, German, French or Danish, make her an indispensable component to a successful shoot.
