As deputy director of Vogue Italia and head of Vogue Talents, Sara Maino oversees this important international project created with Franca Sozzani in 2009. Vogue Talents is both an editorial and online project; a network that scouts and supports the best emerging creative talents in womenswear, menswear, accessories as well as fashion photography around the world.
A regular attendee at global talent spotting committees, Maino serves as a judge in several fashion competitions, including the LVMH prize, the International Talent Support (ITS), Woolmark Prize, Fashion Trust Arabia and many more. She also travels throughout local fashion weeks to scout up-and-coming designers.
Since September 2018 she has been the International Brand Ambassador for Camera Nazionale Della moda Italiana while continuing her duties supporting a variety of initiatives dedicated to talents under the Vogue Italia umbrella.
