Carolina Herrera was raised with three siblings by her mother, María Cristina Niño Passios, and her father, Guillermo Pacanins Acevedo, who worked as an air force officer and was a former governor of Caracas. When she was a young girl, she introduced her to the fashion world by her grandmother and mother, as she went with them to fashion shows in Paris by Balenciaga, and she then began making clothes for her dolls.

Carolina’s career began in 1965, when she was hired as a publicist for Emilio Pucci, and at the same time, she started working at his boutique in Caracas, which was moved to New York in 1980. During that time, Carolina became well-known for her own styling and in 1972 she appeared on the International Best Dressed List, and later in 1980 she was inducted in its Hall of Fame, which marked the beginning of an increase of her net worth.

Thus, in 1980, Carolina’s dressmaker made for her 20 dresses, which she brought from Caracas to New York City. At the same time, she met publishing tycoon Armando de Armas, who offered to fund her business, so she opened her own showroom called “Carolina Herrera Ltd.” in Park Avenue. Soon, she began to work on her first clothing line, at the instigation of Diana Vreeland, a former Editor-in-Chief of “Vogue” magazine. Her collection was displayed at Manhattan’s Metropolitan Club, and it received positive critiques. Since then, his career and popularity has only gone upwards, as well as her net worth, as her business began to grow rapidly. Some of her first clients were Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, the former First Lady, and Estee Lauder, who is known as a cosmetics tycoon.

In the late 1980s, Carolina designed her own fragrance, which she by got by license through Spanish fragrance company “Puig”. In the following years, she added to her collection new perfumes for women, as well as the men’s “Herrera for Men”, which became complete successes. In 1995, she began to work in the position of Creative Director of the Spanish company, which increased her net worth by a large margin.

To speak further of her career, in 2000, Carolina opened a boutique in Manhattan, and in no time her business expanded into other countries, increasing further her wealth. She has also collaborated with such celebrities as the Duchess Diana de Melo, Renee Zellweger, Michelle Obama, and Melania Trump. In 2008, she created a ready-to-wear brand named “CH Carolina Herrera”, lifting her net worth further.

Most recently, she released her first advertising campaign, in which appeared such models as Joséphine Le Tutour, and Elisabeth Erm. Beside that, she also launched one more fragrance in 2016, named “Good Girl”, and its cover face is Karlie Kloss. Thus, her net worth is certainly rising.

Thanks to her accomplishments, Carolina has earned a number of recognitions and awards, including the Gold Medal of the Queen Sofía Spanish Institute in 1997, the Geoffrey Beene Lifetime Achievement Award from the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 2008, the Style Awards Designer of the Year in 2012, and the 2014 Couture Council Award for Artistry of Fashion, among others.

Speaking about her personal life, Carolina Herrera has been married to Reinaldo Herrera Guevara, The 5th Marquis of Torre Casa and editor of “Vanity Fair” magazine, since 1968. The couple has two daughters and six grandchildren. Previously, she was married to land owner Guillermo Behrens Tello (1957-1964), with whom she has two daughters as well.
