Carmen de Tommaso founded her fashion house in PARIS in 1945 and named it Carven. She was the first to make clothes for petite women (like herself); a very Parisian and democratic view of fashion design. It now lives on in the spirit of perfect design and choice materials. Today, the house offers ready-to-wear that is both inspired and accessible. With designers Alexis Martial and Adrien Caillaudaud joining the house in March 2015, Carven takes on a modern and fresh elegance twisted with French allure for day and night wardrobe.
