I’m Carolina Popa. I was born in Chisinau, in Moldavia, and raised in Italy. I’m currently in my 3rd year of fashion design at Campus NABA in Rome.
I’m very determined and curious, qualities I consider fundamental and necessary in seeking inspiration and translating it at design level.
My project, begun in the final year and translated into the collection and thesis, is rooted in the geography of my origins and is a minimalistic exploration of the decade of the late ‘90s – early 2000s that saw an aesthetic and cultural revolution in the fashion of the time and continues to influence the contemporary idiom, defining the perimeter and precedent for all the avant-garde projects down to the present day.
