Born and raised in Venezuela, Carolina Herrera was considered one of the best-dressed women in the world in the 1980s. An empress of style and artistic muse, she inspired pop-art icon Andy Warhol and was photographed by some of the world’s most celebrated photographers.
Carolina Herrera presented her first capsule in New York in 1981 with encouragement of Diana Vreeland, legendary Vogue Editor-in-Chief. It was met with editorial acclaim and commercial success, and thus the Fashion House of Carolina Herrera was born.
The essence of Carolina Herrera’s signature style lies in her keen ability to find inspiration in a great variety of artistic disciplines (architecture, painting, cinema, design etc.) and to creatively translate them into a modern, dynamic, yet timeless fashion that exudes effortless elegance.
