Today, Vauxhall Fashion Scout caught up with Carlotta:

VFS: Carlotta, what have you been up to since we saw you last at Freemason's Hall?!
Carlotta Actis Barone: A lot! First of all I attended Tranoi trade show in Paris then I attended press days at Blow PR which got very good reviews!
Then it's been application time, I applied for a few talent competitions and I am waiting for the answers. Just before Easter, I went to Italy to meet few production companies and fabric factories. Now I'm designing, pattern cutting and print making for my new SS13 collection!

VFS: Can you tell us anything about SS13?
CAB: Only 1 clue : colours and feathers...

VFS: We can't wait to see it!
CAB: It's always great to work with the amazing Vauxhall Fashion Scout team!!! Can't wait to see you all again guys!!
