Allegra has more than 20 years’ experience in the retail, fashion and luxury goods sector, including investment banking and corporate roles in Italy and the UK.
She graduated from Stanford University with a degree in economics and a minor in French, before beginning her career at the Prada headquarters in Milan, Italy, working on new business development, strategy and M&A.
