Carolina Herrera : 35 Years of Fashion, Hardback Book

Carolina Herrera : 35 Years of Fashion Hardback

Description

The first name in American elegance, Carolina Herrera has distinguished herself in the global fashion world with a style that exudes luxury, femininity, and impeccable taste.

Encouraged by friend and admirer Diana Vreeland to open her fashion house in 1981, Herrera s collections are favoured by First Ladies (from Jackie Kennedy to Michelle Obama), celebrities, inter- national royalty, and her own faithful clientele for their refinement, timelessness, and glamour.

The first complete portrait of this influential designer s career, this monograph is both a celebration of three-and-a-half decades of the house s work and a look forward. Organized into chapters that highlight signatures of Herrera s work, the book illustrates the distinctive innovation and caliber of her designs (she is one of the few American designers who still employ couture-trained ateliers team). The text, by veteran fashion writer J.J. Martin, includes quotes by colleagues and friends, interviews, and behind-the- scenes reporting. In addition to archival images, the lavish visual materials include new photography of Herrera s work from her 1981 debut to the present. Art directed by Fabien Baron, with a foreword by Suzy Menkes, this book is an exciting look at one of the leading figures in American fashion.
