Monica Nera

Who is the #monicanerawoman? There are a few answers to that question, but let's start with the most obvious one, which is about the face behind the brand itself. Beginning with the name, ‘Monica’, the Creative Director and Designer. She has her origins in Warsaw, Poland, and is proud of heritage but has always been a globetrotter. In particular, the United Kingdom's capital London is her sweet poison - she visits every month and stays mostly in Notting Hill, where she has also opened a second base of her company.

Now 'Nera', the Italian female adjective 'black', has a special story behind it. When Monica lived in the Reggio Calabria, located in the South of mainland Italy opposite Sicily, she started thinking about creating clothing. So her first project was to create a little black dress at the likes of Coco Chanel, as she wanted to design timeless yet elegant pieces for women who seek originality with a slow fashion approach.
