Her memories are those of dressing up as a princess with her Mamas high heels and handbags walking around the house. She made her career in the Swiss Jewellery, Luxury Industry for more than 17 years. After becoming a mom of two, she set out on turning her long-lasting dream of creating her own fashion brand, into a new business venture.
