Beretta was born in Béziers in 1937. In 1957 she took the advice of Roger Bauer who was working at Jacques Griffe and decided to be a fashion designer. She found work with Antonio Castillo[1] who was creating costumes for the theatre. She went on to work in New York for Pierre d’Alby and Mac Douglas, and Oleg Cassini.
