Joanne Ricci is a Kwantlen Polytechnical University graduate of the Fashion Design and Clothing Technology Program. After graduation Joanne honed her skills and experience working within the fashion industry in Italy. Ricci’s brand Giovanna Ricci creates simple and timeless clothing for the modern woman. Ricci likes versatile pieces that the wearer can “make her own”. Being Italian, she finds inspiration in Italy and its culture therefore; Italy’s cities are always incorporated into her collections. Ricci’s passion for fashion design developed at a young age as she drew and dressed her Barbies. Ricci took her passion further when she began to use scrap fabric to develop clothing for her dolls. One of her most pleasurable moments was when she met Gianni Versace and had the opportunity to speak with him. Ricci has been a part of the fashion industry for about 30 years and only took a brief break while she raised her three children.
