Carmen de Tomasso founded her fashion house in Paris in 1945 and named it CARVEN.
She was the first to make cloths for petite women (like herself) a very Parisian and democratic view of fashion design. Her perfumes were born out of that same spirit: utilizing for the first time, raw materials such as chypre for “ Ma Griffe” and the vetiver root for her men’s eau de toilette. Later, the Sales Department of CARVEN company, has decided to utilize the most famous Brand Name “CARVEN” in various other products, such as Home Textiles, Glasses, Women and Men Accessories etc. In 2010, the owners of the Carven Brand Name, a French independent company, have ended the Haute Couture Collection so as to launch contemporary and affordable men and women’s ready-to-wear collections. Today, the house offers ready-to-wear that is both inspired and accessible. The management of the CARVEN house is now belonging to Guillaume Henry, with previous experience in the House of Givenchy, who has played a key role in the new identity of the label, through the clothing designs that combine freshness, dynamism, color and very amazing details!
From the couture years, Carven has kept its heritage. It lives on in the spirit of perfect design and choice materials. The house of CARVEN has linked his name due to its French elegance and the products which are bearing the name “ CARVEN” , attract shoppers worldwide.
