Gaia Di Paola studied Architecture in Rome and worked as a fashion designer for internationally renowned brands. After taking several crafting courses at St. Martin’s College of Arts & Design in London, she discovered her passion in combining art and fashion. She later established her eponymous brand GAIADIPAOLA, creating precious hand-painted and hand-embroidered home textiles. Working between Rome and London, her pieces express both the eclectic energy of a modern metropolis and the rich Italian tradition of hand-craftsmanship.
