Born in Hong Kong, Adriana Giuffrida spent her early years travelling the world with her family, developing a love of design and a sense of creativity as a form of expression.

Eventually settling in Melbourne, Adriana studied at RMIT, completing a BA with honours in Fashion Design and a Diploma of Textile Design.

Adriana went on to work in the buying office at Australian retail giant Myer, then with labels Something Else by Natalie Wood, P.A.M (Perks & Mini) and Ksubi.

Throughout her career she has continued to pursue her love of travel. It was during one of these trips that she was inspired to create her own line of jewellery, and in 2011 POMS was born.
