The Roman fashion designer Caterina Gatta lives, studies, and works for her passion. Graduated in Science of Fashion and Costume at La Sapienza University in Rome, after she completed a two‐year course specializing in Fashion Design with honors. During university, she attended courses like Fashion Styling at Central Saint Martins in London and Jewelry and Luxury Industry at Confcommercio in Rome, having also various work experiences. Since 2011, she began to develop her own fashion project, under the registered trademark Caterina Gatta, personally taking care of all creative, organizational and management aspects.
The idea of her own clothing line made from vintage fabrics of renowned designers such as Gianni Versace, Yves Saint Laurent, Pierre Cardin, Lancetti, Givenchy, Valentino, Ungaro, and many others, comes from the passion for fashion that draws on past to project into the future: not any traditionalist taste, just the need to rediscover through colors, patterns and prints, a typical Italian creativity that seems to have disappeared within a new generation of designers. Drawing inspiration from textiles, the search for textiles inspires her and plays a fondamental role in her job.
