We loved Carmen’s 2014 designs so much we couldn’t resist the invitation to his 25th Anniversary Collection at Mercedes Benz Fashion Week! His signature style that has adorned celebrities and fashionistas for years was as fresh as ever!

Carmen is known throughout the fashion world for more than his wildly successful designs; he is an active philanthropist and supported the Shelter for Abused Children and Women at the Old Bags Luncheon held in the Ritz Carlton Golf Resort in Naples, Florida. Shortly before his Autumn/Winter 2014 designs dazzled a hall packed with 600 of Southwest Florida’s most fashionable donors, Carmen found the time to sit down with Femme Rouge to talk about his personal passions, life behind the scenes, what it takes to be a successful designer and his unique definition of femininity.
