about me

Over the past 15 years, I've pioneered positive impact

in the fashion industry through transparency.

My expertise spans fashion design, sustainability, and ​innovative entrepreneurship.

Transitioning from fashion to designing digital solutions for ​the Web3 era, I've worked with brands such as Stella ​McCartney, Phoebe Philo, BEEN.LONDON, startups and ​organizations such as Provenance, UNECE, SAC, and the ZDHC ​Foundation, implementing transparency and traceability ​strategies. As a thought leader, I share my vision worldwide ​as a keynote speaker and consultant.

web3 Digital solutions

Elevating brand trust for the Web3 Era. In 2023, I launched my new ​venture, a lifelong dream realized under one roof: OPEN.MODE™. ​We offer a suite of 'phygital' solutions, prioritizing traceability and ​transparency beyond the point of sale. My vision to enable ​circularity through an infinite product lifecycle is materializing by ​merging the digital and physical worlds to add value beyond point ​of sale.

Brands can create new value by engaging their customers, ​empowering them with tools to be part of the change we want to ​see in the world.

“Purpose and transparency enable trust. This case study gave birth to a new market in the intersection of fashion, sustainability and innovation”.

Changing the Future of Fashion with Blockchain Technology

A Transparent Company envisioned the integration of blockchain technology to enhance transparency in the fashion industry. Under Neliana's leadership, the project forged partnerships with London College of Fashion's Innovation Agency, collaborating on the Martine Jarlgaard x Provenance initiative to document and unveil the world's first garment traced on blockchain.

This landmark case study was presented at the Copenhagen Fashion Summit 2017, featured within the Innovation Hub, and traveled the world as part of conferences, seminars, accelerator programs, and academic research—marking the dawn of a new era in the fashion industry that continues today. Blockchain technology empowers suppliers and brands to offer consumers comprehensive insights into materials, processes along the supply chain.
