Introducing the WGSN Future Makers: Caroline Sena

We caught up with Caroline on her inspirations, goals and the difference we can make in the world. 

Firstly, I’d love to know, what is your day job?

At the moment I’m a Community Manager at an agency called b+ca. I monitor social media accounts from artists such as Karol Conka, Tim Maia and Capital Inicial.

And before that, is there a project you’ve worked on that you particularly loved?

I’d definitely say my graduation project from my time at university. I created a fashion film with a script based on Black female representation. Beyonce’s Lemonade was my main inspiration and reference.

Is there anyone else in the public eye that inspires your work?

My biggest inspirations are influencers such as Maga Moura, Larissa Cunegundes, Luanda  Vieira, Marina Santa Helena and Carla Lemos, because I feel that they represent me and in a way inspire me and encourage me to achieve my space and not give up on my interests and goals.

What is it about fashion you love?

I love fashion because I see it as something that drives my creativity, and because the skills that I’ve always wanted to develop all relate to it, such as trend forecasting, production, photography and more.

Is there anything else that drives your work?

Currently diversity and representation issues. Even though they are largely being discussed now, it is something that I want to bring and work with, because I believe that we can engage even more in actions that will make the difference that we so want for the world.

Caroline is mentored by Sofia Martellini, who leads the content at WGSN’s sister brands Use Fashion and Start by WGSN. Sofia is a content strategist specialised in researching trends and understanding how they will impact the Brazilian market.
