Carlos Soares has degrees in Fine Art and Graphic Design and has spent nearly two decades in the international marketplace.
At one point, he lived in India in order to work with impoverished children. It was there that he created “The Magic Company”, a producer of incense. His innovative packaging, labeling and marketing earned him international acclaim.
Once back in Brazil, he continued using the name Magic Company and began making suitcases, hatboxes and chests from recycled materials. He was invited to present his work throughout South America and won a host of prizes and honors. At one point, he was commissioned to create a one-time collection for General Motors for the Corvette.
Mr. Soares currently divides his time between living in Brazil and the United States.
