About

I´m an argentinian actress, performer, costume and fashion designer actually living in Sicily, Italy. I was initially related to vintage clothing due to my creation of characters for the scene.

Etsy allowed me to work with Ephemere Vintage from Buenos Aires, Argentina, Chiapas, Mexico and now Trapani, Sicily, Italy! I could continue my research on vintage from these three countries.

I´m inspired by music, the world, nature, history, films, photography and books.
Edith Piaf, Lila Downs, Astor Piazzola, The Chemical Brothers, Calle 13, The Beatles...Every Quentin Tarantino film, Julie Taymor, Alfred Hitchcock, Samuel Beckett, Federico Garcia Lorca, Gabriel Garcia Marquez, Julio Cortazar, Arthur Miller, Emilio Carballido....
Enjoy!
