Clara Giaquinto is already known in the fashion system thanks to her participation at Vogue talents in September 2016, where she was among the finalists.
The young fashion designer has wasted no time: her brand Cora Milano was born in February 2016, with a production entirely made in Italy, produced by 1920Srl, a company of excellence in fashion apparel production and distribution.
Milan, the fashion capital, was the first showcase for this emerging brand that quickly gained wide acceptance in the fashion scene. Workmanship and high quality materials have now also attracted the interest of foreign markets, where Cora Milan is distributed in the most prestigious shops and department stores.
What is the reason of so much interest?
Clara had a multifaceted training between Polimoda in Milan and IUAV in Venice, moreover her origins are the leitmotif of Cora collections. From her city Padua, Chiara has indeed token inspiration to orient her creations towards art: not surprisingly Giotto’s frescoes in Scrovegni Chapel inspired prints, highlights and shadows of FW17 collection.
The artistic sensibility of the designer has already become her distinctive mark, so much that for SS17 collection there are strong references to the archaeological excavations of Pompeii.
What strikes of this outstanding fashion designer and that will be talked about her much longer, however, it is the refined taste in mixing ancient charm with modern currents. Despite the strong cultural references, FW17 Cora collection recalls 70’s street style and refers to Bianca Jagger personal style.
Cora Milano draws a woman capable to enhance her own personality, without falling into excesses and able to play between history and modernity. An original and not easy to reach positioning, but that ensures to the brand a special place in current fashion scene.
