Ines Valentinitsch graduated with honours from the Fashion Department at the University of Applied Arts Vienna under Marc Bohan and Helmut Lang, where she was the only one in her year to receive a one-year scholarship to study at the Domus Academy for Fashion and Design in Milan. After completing her degree she stayed in Milan, working for various Italian and international companies. In 1998 she designed her first own collection. Since February 2000 Ines Valentinitsch has presented her summer and winter collections twice a year during Milano Collezioni as well as at trade fairs in Paris. An excellent reputation precedes the brand in Milan, Paris, Tokyo and London. Her style is feminine and smart; she prefers to work with print motifs and pays particular attention to the materiality of her designs.
