Mainly I like to make clothes
Here is a little text Miss Clara Cornet wrote about my designs
Paula’s clothes are not recommended for court appearances, for riding on the bus and definitely not for diner with your boyfriend’s parents.Feel free to wear them in a mosh pit, running away on a horse or during a black magic séance.
Her loose-it-on-stage fringe jackets caught the attention of Ra who invites her every season to showcase her collection during Paris Fashion Week.
Paula mixes concert excitement in the everyday life. This ambivalence seduced Opening Ceremony who asked her to make her first and exclusive collection in 2011 – as they describe her collection « it’s making us want to turn up the crazy too ».
Born in Brasil, in a tiny fisherman town, Paula grew up between her back yard jungle, and the city of Buenos Aires.
Her delicate aesthetic rose from her different travels and a young admiration for Michael Jackson. Stitching obsessed from an early age, embroidering sequins on shiny fabric soon became a signature look in her very first rock-inspired designs.
Paula was trained in traditional paternmaking in Milan, before moving to Antwerp where she completed her studies at the Royal Academy of Arts.
In 2010, she opened a studio in Buenos Aires where she started her first line House of Matching Colours.
Fragile and iridescent, Paula collaborated with many artists, creating stage costumes and set designs, along with a collection of leather jackets.
She was recently a finalist at the Festival de Hyères 2012 while finishing a Post-graduate degree in Fashion Management at Institut Français de la Mode. Paula is soon launching a new collection in collaboration with Juan Hernandez Daels.
