Carolina Herrera will receive the Étoile Award from the Savannah College of Art and Design in honor of her past and present achievements in the world of style and design.
To celebrate the Venezuelan designer's 35-year career, the Georgia State University has launched the Refined Irreverence exhibit, which showcases her best creations since the first collection she launched in 1981.
"It is a great privilege to present 35 years of the classic elegance of Carolina Herrera," said Paula Wallace, president of the Savannah College of Art and Design, in an interview. “Her creations reflect a refined sensitivity, which is both classic and modern. Every woman who wears her designs feels the way Carolina wants: beautiful.”
The exhibition, which will include pieces from Herrera's personal collection and dresses worn by Michelle Obama, Taylor Swift and Renée Zellweger, will be open to the public from May 20 at the FASH Museum of Fashion + Film in Atlanta and also at the Museum of Art of Savannah.
