Originally from Bologna, Lara is the creative mind behind Paperize.
With a degree obtained at London College of Fashion in costume design and technical effects for Film & TV, she went through a short yet intense work experience as freelance costume maker and textile painter of feature films, after which she channelled her passion in props build for the retail and event industry, collaborating with award winning retail design agencies in London and UK.
Since early days she has been obsessed in discovering the versatility and potential use of everyday's materials, and in 2015, Paperize was born, focussing its goals on designing tailored handmade products, using high quality paper from certified FSC suppliers. The products are of incredible beauty, offering a wide range of textures, colours and patterns. We listen to our clients and offer the versatility of a large selection of paper collection, and upon our clients’ request, the flowers can be hand painted, either with watecolours or airbrushed.
If desired, a coat of water based gel can be applied so to preserve their shape, and guarantee their durability.
Paperize’s goals are focussed on originality and a love for details, for clients who appreciate and perceive the intricate art of its creations, from the single flower to the complexity of designing a window display, or liaising directly with the clients in the art direction of marketing events and wedding receptions. We love travelling, discovering new worlds and working in synergy for international clients. To live other cultures and traditions is what sparks our creativity and intellectual journey.
Wherever you are, we will be.
