Fashion Icon: Carolina Herrera

"I Love the idea of elegance and intricacy, but whether it is in a piece of clothing or a fragrance, the intricacy must appear as simplicity."  

For all of that are fans of Carolina Herrera we know that she truly lives by her quote above; therefore, she truly practices what she preach. I have always admired Herrera's personal style, she is always so clean, chic, and simplistic. Her aura, just from studying her, gives off so much class and sophistication, she can nearly be iconic on that alone but its her hard ,yet breathtaking, work of nearly 17 years in the Fashion Industry that makes her an Icon and a force that will never be reckoned with.
Herrera was born in Caracas, Venezuela and grew up around women who wore nothing but couture. At the mere age of thirteen she attended her first show (Balenciaga) with her grandma, of course with this type of upbringing fashion was bound to be embedded into her soul and it definitely was. So in 1980 she decided she would create a "test" Fashion Collection which received a response that was very positive. The very next year Herrera formed Carolina Herrera, Ltd and relocated to the United States to make her home in New York. Carolina became an instant success and became much of  a high demand among speciality stores and women who exuded chicness and sophistication, which she implements to a T!
She not only has a much successful brand in clothing but in fragrances as well. Herrera has quite a few fragrances being distributed right now in stores worldwide, including one for men!! Herrera has definitely become one of my favorite luxury brands and the styles of her designs are truly IMMACULATE!!

I leave you with Carolina Herrera's F/W 2010-11 Ad Campaign that features her daughter! The Ad, in my opinion, is very stunning........only Carolina Herrera can make a zebra look sophisticated and chic!
In the words of Rachel Zoe, "I Die."
