Carmen de Tommaso founded her fashion house in 1945 and named it Carven.
Since the beginning, the Carven house has had a very Parisian and democratic view of fashion design. Spontaneous, light, simple and enthusiastic, the most impulsive fashion designer of her time, Madame Carven has always accomplished things on the basis of her love, her convictions and desire to play.
From the couture years, Carven has kept its heritage. It lives on in the spirit of perfect design and choice materials. Today, the house offers ready-to-wear that is both inspired and accessible. The silhouette is young and modern, the cuts precise and often short. The dress code grants pride of place to blends of styles and materials, with witty mixes of pure, rigorous and fluid, floaty lines. A new elegance for day and night illustrates the subtle yet audacious new allure of Carven.
