These days the description “creative” often triggers rolling eyes and the thought “Okay, but what does that mean?” Well, Carla Camprubi is a pretty good example for exactly this scenario. The 29-year-old Barcelona-born resident studied graphic design but later decided to divide her time in a number of fields – all of which culminate in the world of fashion. Be it communication and PR, consultancy or as a stylist for textile brands and the bi-annual fashion and culture magazine METAL, she’s got her finger on the pulse of the moment.
Outside her professional work she has a keen eye for the arts – whether it’s cinema, dance, sculpture or photography, you’ll find a wonderfully chosen selection of them all while scrolling, scrolling, scrolling through her Instagram feed. Reason enough for us to get to know this Spanish wunderkind a little better.
