Summary note:
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 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. The text 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.
