Love Your Work: Five Minutes with Carolina Herrera

I have a responsibility to the woman of today – to make her feel confident, modern and above all else beautiful. ‐ Carolina Herrera

Bridalwear royalty and "fashion's first lady", Carolina Herrera introduced her bridal collection in 1987. From the beginning, the bridal collection is designed with the same style vocabulary innate in the ready‐to‐wear. Carolina Herrera has become the destination for brides in search of femininity, a touch of romance and exceptional craftsmanship known to the atelier.

We asked Carolina a few questions about her latest bridalwear range, which is available at The Wedding Boutique at David Jones, or by making an appointment at our Bridal Suite.


Describe your latest collection in one word.
Romantic.

What is it about designing bridal gowns that you love the most?
The bridal industry has never stopped being a world of fantasy, and that is why I love it. I am always very honored every time a bride selects a Carolina
Herrera wedding dress – it's so rewarding to contribute to one of the most important moments in a woman’s life – to make her feel beautiful, confident
and special.

Any tips for a bride searching for her perfect dress?
On her wedding day a woman should be certain that she has found a dress that makes her feel confident and above all else, beautiful.

How do you maintain your signature pieces / style and remain on trend as well?
Bridal is more classic than trendy. Every season you need to translate what’s traditional into what’s modern. With my bridal collections, I never design
based on fashion trends, but I try to create gowns which are much more personal. Whether it is a touch of blue or a grosgrain detail, a bride always looks for a dress that is unique and distinctive, just for her.
