Hola!

I am Aitana Munoz from Barcelona, but I am currently living in London.

I studied Business Degree in Barcelona and once I finished I moved to London to study English for 6 months. I enjoyed it so much that I looked for a job to be able to stay in the city.

I have always been interested in the Fashion field and this is one of the reasons I started working in retail. After working for multiple companies in the same field, I joined the international luxury group, Kering, where I was the receptionist at the Head Office.

Two years after, I moved to Christopher Kane, one of the Kering brands, to be the PA of the CEO. During my time in the British brand, I have also been lucky to work closely with the Merchandising and Sales Team, which allowed me a better understanding of how a fashion brand works.

Aitana was welcomed by the members of the Munay Urpi weaving association in Huaran!

After joining Kering, I wanted to volunteer closely with an NGO with a connection with fashion. Peru, its culture, and its colours always fascinated me so at the beginning of this year I found the perfect combination! And here I am, ready to help TOP as much as I can, sharing my knowledge and experience with Sarah, Ligia, and Lourdes.
