Her first collection was made when Carmen was six years old (!) and today she keeps on creating the extraordinary images filling them with her own philosophy.
Carmen Emanuela Popa has been passionate about art from a very early age. Fashion design is just a pretext to create unique characters who reveal an emotional universe about the aesthetics of the human being.
What does inspire me? Drama of this world with all it entails, wars, famine, poverty .. in contrast to the "blessed" world with peace and joy of living.
I am inspired by every passerby, each is a piece of the universe and has its own perception of the miracle of life. In all times, people liked to embellish, to strive for perfection as nature itself does. I believe that fashion began when wars ended. It is a form of peace, which tends to come out. Sometimes, in the morning .. when I come back to the reality of this world .. I simply see these images! .. divine characters that basically talk about ourselves.
It is not just about attires. It is an art that makes you catch a moment, feel and embrace the beauty. MERCEDES BENZ FASHION WEEK RUSSIA

The military ballet theme was a very new, fresh and interesting idea to present as a new designer. This new idea was based on the classic khaki for the army look, but unexpected volumes created this different from the common result, that is why the "best catwalk" award was easy to get.
