Valentina Schuchner - Owner of Valentinna
“This advisory sessions gave me the opportunity of having direct feedback from two renowned designers of the Argentinian industry, who have a vast experience in the design industry like production, distribution, branding, communication, marketing focused on sustainable development.
The follow up sessions were of great guidance and meant a lot to me. It is fundamental to have an outsiders view to fully understand how my label is perceived. The best of these sessions was the involvement, dedication and hard work they Romina and Lucia had, to fully understand my background and label’s values, helping me to take my ideas into a new level by staying true to my ideas.”

Milagros Pereda
“The advisory sessions of IMAN gave me the final push I was needing. Romina and Lucia made me feel, see and believe where I could take my label and how to make it. It was really inspiring to be in touch with someone who has already been in your shoes, and see what they could accomplish, particularly in the area of sustainability and environmentalism.
I believe that more than tools, they lend me a hand and opened a new path. Though my project was still at an early stage, I was able to let go of many ideas that were blocking and stopping my work, though with their support I was encouraged to search even deeper into my ideas, with a new approach. I’m beyond grateful for these sessions, because at the end, their support made me believe in myself. “

Agustina Dos Santos Claro - Owner of U+1/A2

“The advisory sessions of Iman with Pia Rey were a sort of therapy session, were I was able to rediscover, refind, reconnect and redefine myself and my work. Pia was able to rapidly spot and put words to what was going on with my work. Sometimes the designer’s work is a lonely job and through that path you loose track and focus. These advisory sessions helped me to put words into what was confusing me about my label, to have a new perspective about my work and become conscious about the fact that nothing was lost.
Through Pia’s eyes, I was able to discover my strengths and identify what makes me different, things I wasn’t able to see for myself. The whole process was a revelation, it helped me find my own voice and specially my own trust.”
