From an early age, Carolina Machado's (Leiria, 1994) taste for fashion, art and design defines her academic career. Carolina starts her training in Visual Arts in 2009 and in 2012 she moves to Oporto to study Fashion Design at ESAD, in Matosinhos, graduating in June 2015.
In October of 2015, she presents her collection at the Sangue Novo platform of ModaLisboa and In 2016 she launches her own womenswear brand, where she currently works. In October 2017, she integrates the LAB platform of ModaLisboa.
The inspiration for this collection comes from a trip made to Capri island in Italy’s Bay of Naples. From the narrow white streets, lined with Tuscany architecture, covered with purple and pink cascading flowers to the turquoise sea, dotted with yachts and sailing boats.
“Dolce Vita” captures the hot breeze of the Italian summer, playing with crinkled, wet and shiny fabric textures, a bright pastel colors and even the typical tie dye prints that are usually seen in beach cover ups.
