Celebrated Italian glamazon, “the Greta Garbo of Milan,” whose famous ‘Rising Sun’ collection, coveted ‘Z’ desks and ‘Heron’ sculptures amongst others, sealed her place in the 70’s spotlight as a highly decorative and relevant talent.
One of the few stand-out female designers at the time, she succinctly and beautifully captured the spirit of the decade, when Hollywood chic met disco-de-vivre, through her deeply personal works, attracting high profile commissions around the world.
