Barbara Bologna was born on the 6th February 1976. She began her career as an sculptress and body art performer. In the year 2000 she began to design and created her own fashion line: AREA. The main reason why she started it was to create new forms of art and to set her artistic vision free through clothes. Her creations are inspired by art and music visionaries, that's why her collections are so intense, revolutionary and, as it happens, transgressive.
