Of Brazilian descent and vitality, but with a home and brand in Milan, Paula Cademartori is an explosion of personality, just like the pieces she designs and produces. A fashion designer specialized in colorful handbags and purses made of leather, suede, colt and exotic skins, she found her fame in Italy: with a master's that took her from Porto Alegre to the Istituto Marangoni in Milan, to a collaboration with the Versace maison, up to founding her own brand.
Paula is one of those people who never gives up: challenges to her are just hurdles. Among the most recent projects that saw her in the spotlight is a collaboration for the Spring/Summer 2017 collection of Kartell à la mode, the design brand's department dedicated to producing and selling fashion accessories. Indeed Paula and renowned brand Kartell share a common philosophy, aesthetic and sense of color and irony. To Paula "life is definitely too short not to play". Here's why.
