Born and raised in The Netherlands to a Dutch mother and Spanish father, Carmen showed creative flair from an early age. Having completed a successful study at the Fashion Academy in Amsterdam in 1993, Carmen started her career as a fashion designer. Today, she has worked with and for some of the biggest names in fashion, at home and abroad. Designing for sophisticated, fashionable women, Carmen is known for her good taste and unique style. Now, drawing on her years of expertise, knowledge, and international network, Carmen has decided to independently create a high end trouser brand under her own name.
A true craftsman, Carmen combines classic menswear tailoring with a feminine fashion twist. Her high-end designs mean she doesn’t have to compromise. Using opulent fabrics, demanding superior finishes, her unconstrained approach to proportion and acute attention to fit, cut and details, she ensures an effortless, edgy statement trouser that will amp up your outfit.
Inspired by the effortless style of women in Southern Europe, Carmen has a deep appreciation for her Spanish roots. Beyond clothing, she is heavily influenced by the lifestyle, attitudes, art and architecture. Her creations are named after some of her favorite places in Northern Spain as a tribute to family’s heritage.
With her bold Dutch attitude and Spanish finesse, she creates for headstrong, confident women with an eye for detail and quality. Passionate and enthusiastic, Carmen likes to break the rules that are dictating the fashion world, and inspire those who dare to express their personalities through fashion.
