To celebrate Carolina Herrera’s presence at New York Fashion Week for
the past four decades the luxury fashion house will air an intimate,
never-seen-before conversation between Carolina Herrera and creative
director Wes Gordon.
Launching on September 14, ‘The Conversation: Carolina Herrera and Wes
Gordon’, is a four-part mini-documentary, where the two fashion designers
discuss the past, present and future of fashion while sharing personal
memories and anecdotes.
Described as a “fun and witty toast to New York and the fashion
industry,” the unrehearsed, unscripted mini-documentary was filmed in a
single sitting at Herrera’s Manhattan residence in August under strict
Covid-19 health and safety guidelines.
Directed by Lisa Immordino Vreeland, the 16-minute video conversation
celebrates the unique bond between Herrera and Gordon and shares details
about their love of fashion, New York as well as a chapter dedicated to the
House of Herrera.
“Over the past three years, I have had the opportunity to know Carolina
Herrera in many different capacities. The Designer. The Mentor. The Icon.
But the one I treasure most is my Friend.” said Carolina Herrera creative
director Wes Gordon in a statement. “While she may not love the camera, the
camera adores her. In a moment when New York City and fashion need magic
more than ever, I wanted to sit down with my friend, Mrs. Herrera, and let
her share her wisdom and optimism.”
The Conversation: Carolina Herrera and Wes Gordon will be available live
across the newly
launched Carolinaherrera.com website, as well as YouTube, Twitter, and
Instagram, and will feature both English and Spanish subtitles.
