Ponz (she/her)

After graduating from Politecnico di Milano and a short experience in a leather goods sample room she worked in a corporate fashion environment in Switzerland which gave her a strong 3D background and knowledge about digital prototyping and sampling.
She then started her freelance career in Melbourne in Jan 2019, working with international brands and studios, guiding them into integrating digital tools in their practice and building a consistent workflow.
Experienced in managing teams for digital production of assets for virtual sampling purposes and creative campaigns, as well as taking part in projects as a hands-on team member.

Sessional Lecturer in the School of Fashion and Textiles, Sustainable Innovation course, RMIT, Melbourne/Naarm.

Member of digi.gxl collective since March 2019.

“I was born and raised in a foggy town in northern Italy, taking part in the provincial underground culture. 

After my master’s degree in accessories design, I shifted my interest towards digital fashion as I see it as one of the essential tools that will help fixing the industry problem with waste. Of course it’s not a silver bullet, we need a radical and widespread change of mentality towards transparency and fair practice.

I now live in Melbourne, work as a freelancer and teach at RMIT.

Sometimes I like to go back to my sewing machine to create accessories out of discarded materials.”
