Carolina Sanchez was born and raised in Medellin, Colombia, 38 years ago. She didn’t come to Milan to settle down and she is not in the business of drug trafficking (‘You have no idea how many times people make jokes about the cocaine cartel. It is a bit like asking Italians whether they are mafiosi…”). Married with a notary from Palermo who moved to Milan, Carolina is the mother of a 5 year old daughter and owner of a small brand, Los Trapitos al Sol (Secrets in the sun), which produces swimsuits she designs. She came to Italy in 2001 after having finished her fashion studies at the university of her city.
