Find out who is MatildeB ...

.. is the name I gave to my work, making it a brand in 2010, exactly two years after the birth of my Matilde .... and here you can figure out how much you love that name !!
Prior to that date are lived inside the theater, through studies of scenography 'Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, where my thesis on the genius Lindsay Kemp has allowed me to grow professionally.
Lindsay Kemp is the author of my life choice, and now I'll explain why ... the age of 10 my mother, a woman of vision, took me to see his show Alice, from the novel by L.Carroll, I was struck, even today I have in my mind the world of color and magic that has dictated, on time 10 years later, the study set design and costume.
After the thesis I worked at his court as a costume, and I was approached a new kind of language, and the fact of experimentation, where the impossible can become possible.
This work has allowed me to work with theater directors and costume designers like Roman Calleja and Oscar winner Sandy Powell, you can not understand I even touched his statue covered in gold, when it was awarded for the film The Aviator by M. Scorsese, said to bring good luck !!!
I have traveled far and wide between Spain and England, continuous departures and arrivals, always coming home from my Florence; and it is here that I decided that my luggage loads of experience were open to free my ideas in MatildeB.
Initially what I have been featured my bags of jeans, still exploit the potential of old pants and do refashion, a great gym to shell out and mend recreating.
Becoming Mom my horizons have moved on children and
packing clothes for Matilde, I remembered that my grandmother did it for me, the tradition of hand-made, to the color and fabrics without having to be equal to the others.
So I decided to create a line dedicated to them, dressed with a simple, practical and suitable to wear on any occasion.
I conceived I'm Zoo a line of clothes in which to choose your pet to accompany the head. The idea came from my eagerness to invent stories for the evening to sleep Matilda, and now Olivia the second came from three months ..... there was once a fox named Amelia .... These animals have taken shape and are turn into patches.
In addition to children create something for us women, scarves, capes, vests to keep you updated but there will only have to follow me here
