Hi Julliana, how has your background shaped the person you are today?
I’m an Interior and Fashion Designer, with over 20 years of experience. I’m from Brazil where I graduated with an Architecture, Interior Design, City Plan and Landscape Design degree. I’ve worked with the best names in the industry, both in Brazil and USA, until I decided to launch my own company.
