Born in 1983 Silvia has always been a cocktail of cultures. Being raised by Croatian parents in Vienna (Austria) laid the foundations of her cosmopolitan diversity and curiosity.
Silvia soon recognized and developed her passion for ethnic fabrics, gloriously printed textiles and decorative styles within fashion and interior design. While studying International Business Administration Silvia instinctively followed her hobby and continuously combined business theory. Her professional experience includes experience with several international fashion and publishing brands such as Rena Lange in Munich, Condè Nast in Milan, Diadema in Zagreb and India in Vienna. Further education in Fashion Design and Fashion Management followed at La Nuova Accademia di Belle Arti and Università Commerciale Luigi Bocconi in Milan. After graduating from university and two years in Zurich’s recruiting – finance sector Silvia finally decided to totally dedicate herself to her passion by founding the online fashion destination www.silviagattin.com
Silvia finds her inspiration above all in ethnic designs. Her approach is a mix of colourful oriental, occidental, hippie aesthetics, the result of extensive travel and summers spent on the Croatian coast.
