Davide Carrano

Central Saint Martins
BA Fashion Design Womenswear

Davide Carrano was chosen for the scholarship by Katy England for his ‘White Project’ – a body of work that observed the Italian Arte Povera movement of the late 1960’s and early 70’s. Davide explains that he “learns by observing” and that his first steps for research is to read anthropological books and essays, which help him to “understand the everyday”.

Prior to this course Davide was interning in Japan with a brand that works with a specialist print technique called shibori. It was while here that he began to investigate new techniques and sustainable fashion – something he is keen to focus on in the future.
