About
Carlotta Actis Barone collections are the expression of her artistic and socially orientated background. Carlotta was born and raised in Italy, daughter of a visual artist and a published author. She grew up in a very creative environment, where she was stimulated and encouraged to cultivate her creative interests in literature and the arts. After moving to London and graduating with honours from Central Saint Martins she then gained experience working for names such as Stella McCartney, Balmain and BCBG Max Azria among others; building her knowledge and working towards establishing her own brand, which she launched at London Fashion Week in September 2010. Carlotta's style is very unique, with a strong signature, which relates extremely modern matters whilst also drawing on influences from the past. Her garments are tasteful and bold, conveying statements and messages through intricate shapes, slogans and symbols. As She says herself, Carlotta likes to give to her clothes a voice of their own, so the wearer is not only a representation of femininity but also the carrier of a message. Carlotta Actis Barone luxury brand is now preparing for its 6th season and will be showing at London Fashion Week in September this year. The brand covers two lines: evening & occasion wear (including bespoke red carpet items) and her diffusion range, which offers more accessible pieces at a lower price range. Carlotta’s distinguished style has received much praise from press and consumers, with collections featured in Vogue UK and Italy, Glamour UK and Italy, British Airways Magazine, Dash and Kult Magazine, among other high profile International press.
