As far as I can remember, I have always dreamt about fashion. I used to dress up my dolls and was fascinated by fashion magazines. I marvelled at the beautiful designer dresses and imagined how they would look. I would put make-up on and parade with my mum’s jewellery and dresses. I was only 8 years old at that time.
When I was 1 year
At 30, my sweet childhood dreams came to reality. I began to work for luxury cosmetics in Paris alongside all the brands I dreamt of Dior, Givenchy, Yves Saint Laurent; they were finally in my reach. I felt like a superhero with my make-up as my superpower. My mission: put a smile on my clients’ faces by enabling their natural beauty. The best part of my job was to hand them a mirror and observe their reaction as they discover this new version of themselves.

Now here I am, forty-something years-old, living in Melbourne, wife, mother and I have never felt so empowered. I am rich from my past experiences and ready to conquer the world of fashion. My company is called Bellite! It started small among my friends and grew bigger and bigger. Bellite is inspired by my travels and history, as well as people and their culture.
So how do I find my inspiration?
YOU! You are the ones who inspire me. Every woman is beautiful in her own way. From the mum who drops her child to school every morning, to the workaholic woman that runs in high heels all day long. From the woman who has low self-esteem to the confident one. We are all special with a different beauty. Eccentric, conventional, trendy or sexy. I am here to help you find yourself and get you out of your comfort zone.
