Carolina Herrera was born in 1939, in Caracas, Venezuela. Interested in fashion from an early age, Herrera was taken to fashion shows involving brands such as Balenciaga by her socialite grandmother. She has stated that her “eye was accustomed to pretty things”. She began her career in 1965 working as a publicist for Emilio Pucci, and eventually relocated to New York in 1980 to further her career. Her close friend and then editor-in-chief of Vogue magazine, Diana Vreeland, encouraged her to design and launch her own line of Carolina Herrera clothing. She took the advice and since then, she has gone from strength to strength in the fashion industry. She has won many awards in her career, including the Fashion Group International Superstar Award in 2012. She is still designing and running her company in 2016.
