Born and raised in Venezuela, Carolina Herrera was exposed from early on to international culture and fashion. At age 13, her grandmother took her to Paris to see the Cristobal Balenciaga haute couture show. As she elegantly puts it: “My eye was accustomed to see beautiful things”.
Renowned for her impeccable elegance and timeless style, Carolina Herrera was considered in the 1980s one of the best-dressed women in the world. As a true empress of style and artistic muse she inspired pop-art icon Andy Warhol and was photographed by 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. The very first runway show was held at Metropolitan Club, a New York City landmark and institution. The first collection was met with great editorial acclaim and commercial success. Hence, the Fashion House of Carolina Herrera was born.
With her timelessly elegant pieces made from luxuriant fabrics, Carolina Herrera quickly built a loyal following among the Manhattan socialite set in the 1980s, and fashion icons of the era such as Princess Diana and First Lady Nancy Reagan were seen wearing her designs.
The first Carolina Herrera fragrance was launched in 1986. The same year, Jacqueline Onassis’ daughter Caroline Kennedy was married wearing a Carolina Herrera wedding gown, which was so adored by the public that the house debuted its bridal collection soon after.
The house’s diffusion line CH Carolina Herrera was launched in 2002, offering numerous collections of ready-to-wear and accessories for women, men and children. Reflecting an effortless sophistication inherent in Carolina Herrera’s own iconic style, the CH Carolina Herrera label became an immediate success, and is now available worldwide in over 100 countries.
