“I have a responsibility to the woman of today —
to make her feel confident, modern and above all else beautiful.”
Founded by the woman known to dress First Ladies from Jacqueline Onassis to Michelle Obama (and even Bella as a bride in Breaking Dawn), Carolina Herrera has a clear and distinctive style – always feminine, always elegant, always chic.
Her daily uniform being a crisp white blouse, you would not guess that Carolina Herrera actually has a distinctive love for prints. Fruity prints, art deco prints, and all kinds of floral prints take a central role in her collections. “Print adds a touch of fantasy and is the perfect link for bringing all of the components of the collection together,” she says. If I may add, they make for a beautiful and attractive statement piece to look at, too.
In her Manhattan atelier, the designer keeps a library of all the prints of her previous collections, a library that keeps growing every season. You will see them across evening gowns, preppy shorts, silk blouses or scarfs indiscriminately. They elevate any piece.
Today, the brand Carolina Herrera is a well-established fashion empire with a unique signature and a clear motto: “I have a responsibility to the woman of today — to make her feel confident, modern and above all else beautiful.” , Carolina said.
And confident, modern and beautiful is precisely the way I felt that afternoon at the Jardin.
