I was born in Rome. I lived in Spain, UK and Ireland. Currently based in Italy but I am up for overseas projects and eventually relocation.
Since 2007, I work with prints, videos and fabrics design. I exhibited my work in galleries in Italy, UK and US. I worked on personal and commissioned projects. My work is very versatile and gained more complexity and details with the time. In these last years, I worked in costume design for movies, with costume designer Milena Canonero in 3 movies, including The Grand Budapest Hotel by Wes Anderson and recently with costume designer Gabriella Pescucci in a new project that will come out in 2017.
I held a MA degree in Media and Communication studies with a final dissertation on fashion and design.
I was selected by Sara Maino of Vogue Italy New Talents for my work with textile design and gained an interview and photos on : http://www.vogue.it/en/talents/contests-and-more/2011/03/chiara-cola
