We believe in synergies and working together, this is why Lifestyleitaly is a multi-disciplinary workshop, open to collaboration with a network of professionals in many creative fields. Our partners have many years of experience in the area of trend setting, as well as the development of collections for footwear, accessories, fashion and design. LIFESTYLEITALY has been active since 1996, when it was founded by Antonella Bertagnin. Our experience is put into practice in the world of fashion, but also extends to the world of interior design, cosmetics and jewellery.
