Filomena Saltarelli was born in 1982 in Rivoli, a small town in the first ring around Turin. She has always been passionate about fashion since her childhood and after high school Filomena decided to follow her fashion dream by studying fashion design at the European Institute of Design in Turin, graduating in Fashion & Textile Design in 2003. In the same year, Filomena decided to deepen her knowledge and focus on the most artistic aspects of fashion by attending the Royal Academy of Fine Arts in Antwerp, Belgium.
This experience was one of the best she has ever had: different cultures she got in contact with, new ways to think fashion and create it, new city to discover and a new life totally managed by herself on her own. Filomena had her postgraduate degree in Fashion at Royal Academy of Fine Arts in 2007. After graduation, she worked for some famous international fashion designers and in 2014 she set up her own company "Feelomena" aimed at becoming a new symbol of Italian style and elegance in the world.
