Synonymous with sophistication and glamour, Carolina Herrera has been designing sweeping gowns that define modern elegance since 1980. When asked to described the aesthetic of her very first collection, in 1981, Carolina Herrera replied, “It’s my own style.” Decades later, that description still holds true. Carolina burst onto the design scene at the dawn of the luxury-loving eighties with a collection of couture-like dresses, although tailoring played a large role, too. Her signature is a crisp white shirt, often turned back at the cuffs “I have always loved trouser suits,” she has said. “It’s something I absolutely believe in for women.”A woman of impeccable style and taste, Herrera has lent her expertise to socialites and prolific figures, and has made Vanity Fair’s International Best Dressed List multiple times over the years. In 2008, the modest designers accomplishments were acknowledged by the Council of Fashion Designers of America with a lifetime-achievement award.
