Behind The Collection

The Design Process

Born in the United States, and raised in Greece, to a Greek father and a Mexican - American mother, Anna Paola’s designs encompass her multi-cultural upbringing.

Informed perspectives on design, colouring, and ergonomics define the DNA of the PAOLITA brand, whilst Anna Paola’s rigorous eye for detail was obtained whilst working with iconic designers Alexander McQueen and Hussein Chalayan.

Anna Paola’s diverse array of influences informs her extensive research, which ranges from libraries, museums, archives, travels and endless sources of inspiration. Often spending weeks, and sometimes months, researching elements of art history, culture and nature, her proficiency to evoke stories through print has become a core aspect of PAOLITA’s brand ethos.

All our prints are designed in our London studio, hand-drawn by Anna Paola and constructed into garments by our atelier in Europe.
