Silvia Tcherassi, pioneer of the Latin flair according to WWD, was born in Colombia on the shores of the Caribbean. Tcherassi began her career as an interior designer, but the search for new artistic expressions led her into fashion. A true trailblazer, innovator and trendsetter, Silvia Tcherassi is one of the leading figures in fashion. She has been awarded one of France’s highest honors, the Officier de L'Ordre Arts et Lettres, a distinction bestowed on leaders of the international arts community for their “contribution and commitment to cultural service.” She took one more step in her creative development by opening the first Tcherassi Hotel + Spa in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia in 2009. Silvia’s artistic handle of prints, colors, textures and volume reaches higher and bolder with each collection.
