About fashion

Since I decided to separate my research from my brand. Carla Schmetterling become a slow fashion brand  that creates pieces inspired in the 1900's. 

The work started when I adopted some of the victorian shapes for the final project at my fashion degree, then, I started studing the shapes of the 1900's era till I found my own way to project them in 2022.

About tattooing

Since 2017 I have been exploring and growing with tattooing. My perspective of the tattoo experience is really close to my other beliefs. Art has the power to make changes in our body but also in our mind.


 I see the tattoo as an artistic practice that allow me to connect to others. You can read more about here.

About bakery

Baking cakes and making cookies is for me a way to express love. I've been doing it since I was a child at my granny's home. And thos is an activity that makes me feel in peace.

I love cooking with flowers and natural ingredients. You can buy some of my sweets here.
