Valentina Zannoni is Swide’s Editor in Chief.
Valentina has been working at Swide since 2011, before that she wrote for WWD, Financial Times Weekend and Forbes. She has a passion for fashion and its cultural context. With an MA in History from Edinburgh University and an MA in Fashion Journalism from Central Saint Martins in London, she is keen in discovering what is behind a trend, from its history to cultural connotations.
When not writing, Valentina is pursuing her other interests, you’ll find her in the kitchen cooking, in a restaurant trying out new foods, undergoing some extravagant beauty treatment or on a plane heading somewhere. She has a keen interest in literature, with her main area of concentration being contemporary Commonwealth literature. Born in Italy but brought up between the UK and USA, her tastes and culture sit in a grey area of international memory and tradition. Spirited and somewhat eclectic, all contained in a classic casing, Valentina has a very British sense of humor and is always up for a good cocktail.
