Now recognised as one of the world’s most elegant women, Maria Carolina Josefina Pacanins y Nino was born in Venezuela in 1939. Classic chic and yet modern - and comfortable and at the same time feminine. These are all characteristics of the creations by Carolina Herrera, and it is this style that has catapulted her to success. Her first haute couture collection was launched in 1981, followed by her fur collection one year later, and in 1984 her “CH” line appeared. An entire bridal gown collection followed, after she designed Caroline Kennedy’s bridal gown in 1987. She also designed an entire men’s collection as well as jewellery and fashion accessories. In 1988 she introduced her first fragrance, reflecting her grasp of simple elegance and cosmopolitan flair.
