Born and raised in Venezuela, fashion designer Carolina Herrera was recognised early on for her own personal sense of style and was always drawn to the beauty and elegance of fashion. Legendary Vogue editor Diana Vreeland urged Herrera to show her first collection in New York and before long Herrera was one of the most sought-after designers. She went on to design dresses for several American First Ladies, most latterly Michelle Obama.

From bridal collections and fragrances, Herrera went from strength to strength, opening her flagship boutique on Madison Avenue, New York in 2000. 2011 saw her launch her eyewear collection to great acclaim and though she retired in 2018, the essence of Carolina Herrera’s style continues under the creative direction of Wes Gordon.
