Born 1988 in Switzerland and raised on the suburbs of the city of Biel, Mariano Ronny Sulmoni has always been fascinated by arts.
As the son of a trained tailor, living a life surrounded by creative people, it was surprising when he first decided to study business administration and to work in the publishing industry. But his interests for design became bigger over the years.
When he was already working as an independent fashion consultant and writing an online column for a daily newspaper, he decided to deepen his knowledge about fashion at the Swiss Textile College in Zürich. He recognized very early his talent for fashion design, in particular for women's wear.
Still during his studies, as part of a school project, he founded his own fast-fashion label for women and men's wear: VONBERN CLOTHES.
As his creative talent can never be exhausted, he joined the team of Kandahar Schuhmanufaktur as Creative Director. His first collection, for the traditional luxury Swiss shoe manufactory, is called URBAN and has been released Spring 2019.
Despite his great commitment to the shoe factory, he still feels a great passion for women's wear. This passion led him 2018 to his new project: Mariano Sulmoni Atelier.
