Carolina Herrera was born in 1939 and is a native of Venezuela. After many years of being named Best-Dressed in the US she started her own ready-to-wear line in the early 80’s and her designs are heralded for their classy and subtle styles. Most known for her elegant day and evening wear she too has her own fragrance, which bears her name. The Carolina Herrera company has also expanded into accessories and leather goods. She injected a fresh, young attitude for the social debs; added a series of short prom dresses and elegant ball gowns, just barely bares midriffs with cropped tanks or bustiers under jackets and coats for day to evening.
