Stylist and costume designer, that has participated in many competitions, fashion shows and exhibitions in Slovenia and abroad and received several awards.
Her career starts as a costume designer for opera houses in Italy, Slovenia and Germany and theatres all around. Since she was a student she has an extreme passion for a sustainable fashion that's why she set to create a luxury brand that respected the environment.
With these words from Ghandi, “Be the change you want to see in the world”, Matea with her team decided not to wait for big fashion brands to change the industry, but to change it themselves. With the first collection the brand was exhibited for the first time at the multi-brand store in Ljubljana. From then on, they realised how important it was to make clothes in an innovative way.
From the first Milan showroom in Via Montenapoleone to the first articles in the media - Vogue Italia, BOOK Sposa, Rendez-Vous de la mode, Elle - and the Ljubljana parade for the Mercedes Benz Fashion Week in April (2017), the Matea BENEDETTI brand, with its team, continues to grow not only in design and innovation fields but also by spreading its commitment to fashion to serve the well-being of our ecosystem.
