i’ve always been a fan of carolina herrera, not just for her fashion, but for her sense of style, her refined elegance, her great beauty and her lady like aura.
i met carolina at the swan ball in nashville this past year in which she was the honorary chair. she was as lovely and kind as she is elegant and beautiful.
just last week it was announced that carolina’s fall 2018 collection would be her last. she had kept her retirement quiet and has had her successor wes gordon working by her side the last few months. this is big news, carolina has been in the business of making beautiful clothes for 37 years.
it was only fitting her final collections grand finale would be an army of models in white shirts, carolina’s personal signature, and ball skirts, carolina’s design signature.
carolina will be missed. her mark on lady like fashion will endure, her personal style will continue to inspire, american fashion will never be the same.
