About me
Carmen Emanuela Popa is a Romanian fashion designer known for her strong conceptual designs, she founded the brand with the same name embarking on a journey through the fashion world from vast philosophical influences, creating unique and visually challenging images, transmitting emotion and humanistic messages. The characters she proposes are contemporary soldiers, kings metamorphosed into pure rural characters, urban entities that carry in their emotional baggage ancestral origins but who wear outfits made of high-tech materials, mixes of ecological and neoprene, natural and waterproof, all in a dynamic sportswear allure. Her latest collection Fat X is now displayed on official London Fashion Week Platform at Profile Designer Section. She is a constant presence at LFW from June 2020. Popa receives the Best Catwalk Award at the Athens Xclusive Designers Week in Greece, with Contemporary Unknown Soldier collection. In 2014 presents WOMAN N, in Moscow, at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week, a woman's vision which was suggestively named by the international press “a refugee of the future“.

With a strong manifest speech, the project supports the young woman who is still the victim of discrimination and violence. From March 2018, she started collaborating with a program of a traineeship ( 6 months ) with the prestigious IUAV University / Fashion Design, Venice, Italy. Her final Project is called SHOW Me Your Heart. In 2019 he exhibits at the City Hall 1, in Paris, Place du Louvre 4, the works of the Future Folk. Costume Royal project. A concept inspired by the line of French royal dresses brought in urban area by materials and sportswear element and with an particular accessory that referred to environmental and emotional pollution, the mask, which today has become a contemporary symbol of the whole world.

Sometimes, the impossibility of action, of defense makes us lose our advantage but our solid spirit of conservation is the one tha
