Carolina Herrera presented her first capsule in New York in 1981 with encouragement of Diana Vreeland, legendary Vogue Editor-in-Chief. The very first runway show was held at Metropolitan Club, a New York City landmark and institution. The first collection was met with great editorial acclaim and commercial success. Hence, the Fashion House of Carolina Herrera was born.
In celebration of her extraordinary fashion career, Carolina Herrera has been honored on many occasions. Most recently, she was named the Style Awards Designer of the Year and was the recipient of Fashion Group International’s Superstar award in 2012, as well as international recognition with Spain's Gold Medal for Merit in the Fine Arts.
Aside from her stature as an acclaimed designer, Carolina Herrera is committed to philanthropic causes globally. She serves as ambassador for the American Cancer Society and the Intergovernmental Institution in the fight against malnutrition.
