Building a career in fashion
Interview with Carla Grima
There is nothing like seeing young people being passionate about their work, following their dream and even taking risks to achieve it. Carla Grima is one such person who has taken every opportunity that has come her way to travel abroad to study and gain experience by working with internationally renowned, high fashion names like Marc Jacobs and Jonathan Saunders.
She even went to do an exchange program in Paris, claiming to speak French fluently unaware of the upcoming exams in the foreign language.
But so far, Carla has managed to keep going and in fact she is now working on several projects in Paris as well as in her home country, Malta.
Watch the interview and get inspired.
