Silviya Saikali has always had a passion for Italian art, fashion and culture, and all roads led her to become a Creative Graphic designer for Maison Moschino in Milan-one of the most distinguished fashion houses worldwide. Moschino, owned by the Aeffe Group, is famous for its innovative, leading edge and colourful designs, those qualities of which Silviya delivers at the highest calibre.
Her prints and illustrations for the brand’s ready-to-wear apparel, accessories, and lifestyle goods, in addition to campaign artwork, were sold and advertised in Moschino boutiques and prestigious retailers across the globe including Saks Fifth Avenue and Nordstrom in the U.S., Harvey Nichols and Selfridges in the U.K., Isetan and Takashimaya in Japan, and La Rinascente in Italy.
Designing top seller prints and graphics, forecasting trends and researching concepts are qualities Silviya demonstrated working as an assistant of Marina Nelli-a consultant and commercial adviser of the most prestigious fashion companies, leaders in the textile, accessories, clothing and furniture industries (Armani, Dolce&Gabbana, Prada, Versace, Calvin Klein, Dior, to name a few).
In 2011, Silviya left Moschino design team and launched the luxury label SILVIYA NERI. The brand’s extraordinary scarves were recognized immediately, and are successfully sold in over 40 boutiques, concept and department stores worldwide, such as Merci in Paris, United Arrows in Tokyo, Barneys in New York, and have been featured in the international publications Vogue Italia, Interni, WeAr Mag and Decades.
