CKD Master

Accademia Costume & Moda and Modateca Deanna have developed together a truly innovative and unique educational project. The program is aimed to young designers and professionals who wish to pursue a more specialized career. The course’s approach is both highly creative and practical and intends to reduce the existing gap between the creativity and the technical aspects of the manufacturing process.

During the 70s, she began collaborating with the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, John Ashpool, Giorgio Correggiari and Gianni Versace. In the 80s, she created, produced and distributed the collections of Adrienne Vittadini, Krizia, Enrico Coveri and Joseph Tricot – whose collections were designed by John Galliano and John Richmond – and started new collaborations with Giorgio Armani, Claude Montana, Irié and Max Mara. In 1986 she showed in Milan her own label, Pour Toi a knitwear brand teaming with Luca Coelli, Sam Rey and Anna Piaggi as Art Director. In the 90s, whilst consolidating previous collaborations, she started working on new creative projects such as the development of collections for Martin Margiela, Gai Mattiolo, Valentino, Neil Barrett, Lawrence Steele, Matthew Williamson, Prada, Angelo Figus, Julien MacDonald, Yohji Yamamoto and Dries Van Noten.
