The Dresses of Carolina K

Carolina Kleinman is entrenched in Latin American heritage having been born in Argentina, lived in Bolivia, and Peru, and Tepoztlán. She now resides in Miami with family. In 2005 she established her namesake brand and in her words, “design for women who dance.” Carolina strives for less waste and even introduced a Zero Waste collection, where they used every last scrap piece of fabric in the designs. Those designs are built to preserve the history and culture of the cooperatives and artisans she works with. We chatted a bit about her design philosophy, less waste motto and had her answer to the question, “who is the Carolina k woman?” The images are of Carolina and her friend, shot in Tepoztlán, Mexico, wearing her latest resort collection.
