Reviews - What do customers think about Carolina Herrera: Portrait of a Fashion Icon?

Ms. Herrera is a delight to read about, a delight to see in photographs, and a delight to have in the fashion world.

A wonderful, gracious designer, well loved and appreciated throughout the fashion industry.
Worth purchasing!!  Mar 9, 2006
First of all, I have to say, living in China, you are always expecting the worst, but I was so delighted, when I went to the postoffice to pick up my first item from this First of all it came on time and second it was packed perfectly.
The book is more than I expected, very beautiful layout, front- and backpage. You can even remove the cover and then you have a beautiful book. It is very interesting, tells you a lot about her life and the many beautiful pictures gives you a perfect look into her world, and you even get good fashion ideas. This is definately an item to purchase if you like to read about the famous fashinistas. I promise, this book will not dissapoint you.
The always chic Carolina Herrera  May 7, 2005
This book is a beautiful pictoral biography of Carolina Herrera, who's considered one of the most elegant women in the world and a regular on the International Best Dressed lists throughout the 1970s.

Carolina Herrera - wife, mother, friend, designer - exudes a natural warmth that is unmistakably classy. Her inherent gifts for classic chic were nurtured in her rarified position as the beautiful daughter of the Governor of Caracas.

Carolina's collections also define the woman herself: classically chic yet modern, with a refined sophistication that is always feminine and somehow manages to be comfortable as well.
Almost nothing about her designs  May 2, 2005
Potential purchasers of this book should be aware that it has very little about Ms. Herrera's designs. I had hoped it would contain photos of her fashion designs, but the book is mainly a puff piece with glowing comments about Ms. Herrera from her family and friends. There are some interesting photos from her early years, conveying a sense of her evolving style, but overall the book is disappointing. Definitely not an objective review of her career as a designer.
Carolina throughout the years  Jan 9, 2005
As almost every designer has it own book(s) it was now time for a book by Carolina Herrera. This designer who nobody knows in The Netherlands, perhaps only for her fragrances which are for sale in discount drugstores, has done her best to create this ode to herself. And that is exactly what it is. This book is only filled with pictures of Carolina throughout the years. Her children are also featured on a few pictures in this book. The book itself is beautiful and also the pictures are very nice. Don't get me wrong. But a book about a designer without pictures of models in her designs is just not possible i think. So if you want to buy this book to see an overview of her work don't buy this book! A few pictures in this book are not printed on the paper but inserted loosely so you can easily take them out. This makes it possible to frame them or something else with them. That's really nice. I can't wait for Donatella Versace to publish an ode to herself!!
