ABOUT

Karolina Luisoni studied fashion at the Cracow College of Art and Fashion Design (SAPU), Poland. She pursued her education in the field of costumes and textiles at the University of Huddersfield, England. In 2013, her final project "Doctor Faustus" received a special award from Sir Patrick Stewart and an award from the Northern Society of Costumes and Textiles.
Winner of an international costume competition organised in 2015 by Luc Besson, for his movie, “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”.

In 2019 her costume "Mephistophilis" has been exhibited in the Historical State Museum in Moscow as a part of the "INNOVATIVE COSTUME OF THE 21st CENTURY: NEXT GENERATION" exposition. From 2015 she has been designing, making and co-supervising making costumes for the productions of the Opera de Lausanne. Karolina is also specialized in textile printing, dyeing and costume break down and distressing. 

“I believe the combination of skills I’ve learned from my fashion and costume degrees allow me to mix costume history with modern fashion, creating unique pieces and exciting results. I am confident and creative and have a good eye for precision, fine detail and colour. I enjoy collaborating with directors in order to create a visual language for storytelling and thrive on challenges and the rewards they offer the imagination. A wide background in design has made me believe that in every aspect of artistic design the artist must identify and please their target market or audience. Good design comes from an understanding of history, cultural issues and current events. By living in the present and learning from the past, a designer creates a vision for the future”.
