ABOUT THE DESIGNER
Monica Galletto was born and raised in Milan, the Italian capital of fashion.
Her love of beauty, history and culture brought her from the Italian Mecca of style to the City of Light,
where she studied at the Sorbonne. Degree in hand, she began her professional career in the worldof luxury fashion, working with world-renowned designer, Emanuel Ungaro.
Revelling in the Maison’s world of warm, earthy tones and exotic brights, where fluidity and structure fuse creating an ultra-feminine style, Monica cultivated her acute aesthetic eye, enhanced her affinity for colour and refined her understanding of what is truly beautiful.
Through her career in fashion communications, Monica explored the world working along side numerous fashion designer gurus, managing catwalks, supervising photo shoots with star-system models and handling magnificent attires. It is on one of these occasions that she discovered Jaipur, cradle of India’s rich tradition of jewels and opulence.
I LOVE MY JAIPUR
Immediately enamoured with the capital of Rajasthan’s culture of colour and art of personal adornment, she returned regularly to the Pink City – painted the colour symbolizing hospitality – where she became acquainted with primary craftsmen such as gem cutters, cashmere weavers and embroiderers, as well as spiritual leaders that kindled her passion for yoga.
Being a creative at heart, in 2007 she decided it was time to transform her childhood dream of designing jewelry and clothing into reality by founding her own brand, by Monica G. Conceived as a joyful fusion of East meets West, this cool gypsy girl of effortless elegance successfully incorporated Italian and Indian traditions with technology and innovation, crafting jewels in coloured precious and semi-precious stones. Full of playful symbolisms, when mixed and matched, these small talismans allow each wearer to tell her unique story. In tandem, Monica designed a clothing line of flirtatious tops, romantic skirts, dresses and accessories. All developed in limited editions, these luxurious items at affordable prices gave the brand immediate international appeal.
With a boutique in Via Brisa 15, situated in the heart of Milan’s Magenta neighbourhood, a selected distribution in Europe and social media presence, I Love my Jaipur allows women of the world, with inner strength and gumption, to express their multi-faceted uniqueness through exclusive products that embellish the body and nurture the spirit.
