ESTELLE ZENTIL

Giovanna Engelbert’s name is synonymous with style. Considered fashion royalty, she is a modern-day Renaissance woman with an incredible curriculum vitae built on more than two decades of experience in the fashion world. She has worn many hats, each more fabulous than the next, including model, stylist, fashion editor, creative consultant and social media guru.

Born and bred in Monte Napoleone, part of Milan’s fashionable Quadrilatero della Moda retail district, Engelbert is everything you’d expect and more from someone whose earliest memories are of the vignettes presented in the windows of ultra-luxurious boutiques. The city’s neoclassical mansions, antique shops and museums were the perfect backdrop growing up for this icône de la mode.

Engelbert started her career as a fashion model for the iconic Dolce & Gabbana, but quickly realized that her skills were not limited to one side of the camera.

She has an innate understanding of the fashion landscape and lends her intelligence, creativity and style acumen to every project she comes in contact with.
