In March 2011, she has been selected by Vogue Italy New Talents and in July 2011 by Vogue Italy Video Lab.
In 2012, she collaborated twice with Italian costume designer Milena Canonero, winner of 3 Academy Awards (for "Barry Lindon", "Chariots of Fire" and "Marie Antoinette" and creator of the iconic costumes of Stanley Kubrick's "A Clockwork Orange"), for the movies "I trust you" by Luca Barbareschi and for "The Grand Budapest Hotel", upcoming Wes Anderson's movie.
For this last collaboration, she researched and created patterns for costumes fabrics, with a very special inspiration.
In July 2012, she exhibited with A.I.Gallery, a project of Artisanal Intelligence and AltaRoma, in Rome and with A.I.Remove in Milan at White trade show in January and February 2013.
She created costumes with digital prints for the dance performers of the event NU:S on fashion and parametric architecture, by Double Studio, at Chiostro del Bramante in Rome, Italy.
Chiara Cola is available for special projects and interesting collaborations.
She would love to combine her creations with the work of professionals from science, medicine, architecture etc..
She loves investigating the mysterious interstices between reality and imagination and the inner lives of objects and people: this is how she tries to recount these stories.
Going from prints to videos to textiles seemed like a natural consequence in her work and the match with textile surfaces works perfectly with the images and these mysterious creatures seem like coming to life.
