Apolina is designed in England but inspired by travel and the natural world. Traditional handicrafts from many different cultures serve as the starting point for Apolina pieces, and our color palettes look to unusual color combinations found in nature.
Founder, Caroline, worked in the fashion industry for over a decade before launching Apolina. After the birth of her two daughters, she became disillusioned with the fast-paced women's fashion industry and wanted to create more freely, based purely on passion.
Fond memories of the cherished clothing from her childhood; dresses hand-embroidered by her own grandmother and treasured 1970s hand-me down smocks from older cousins drew her attention to the importance of clothing on a child's young sense of self and ability to express themselves.
