Carolina Raquel is a London College of Fashion Graduate specialized in Fashion Design Womenswear. Her graduate collection ‘induviae’ was shortlisted to be showcased at the curated LCF BA 2018 Press Show, being highlighted in diverse art and design publications such as Dazed and Confused, Dezeen and Something Curated. 
‘induviae’ acknowledges a fashion industry system of fast and slow dichotomies, and considers our relationship with our own clothes: meaningful and meaningless, ephemeral and long-lasting, pondering new meanings about garments as personal objects.

While studying, she worked at Christopher Kane, Vivienne Westwood, Simone Rocha and Roksanda studios, allowing her to deepen her knowledge and creative practice within fashion industry context.

In October 2018, ‘induviae’ was also presented at Young Blood competition at Lisbon Fashion Week, being awarded the Fashion Clash prize, allowing to present her work at Fashion Clash Festival in Maastricht, Netherlands.  In the second stage of the same competition, she explored the different stages of carving a sculpture, by presenting  ‘A complex form’, a 10-looks collection that dissected the conceptual pararelism between carving a sculpture and the act of undressing. She received the best national emerging designer Award, obtaining a scholarship to develop further her creative practice, as well as a place at MA Fashion Design at Polimoda in Florence.
