Carolina Herrera is set to receive the title of "Mercedes-Benz Presents" Designer for her spring/summer 2011 collection.
The "Mercedes-Benz Presents" program recognizes designers who are dedicated to using high-quality materials, unique style and innovative design.
Lisa Holloday, manager of brand experience marketing for Mercedes-Benz USA says of Carolina:
"Herrera's understated grace, precision design and attention to detail uphold the Mercedes-Benz commitment to quality. She is a symbol of great success within the fashion industry and especially in New York City, and choosing her as this season's Mercedes-Benz Presents Designer represents the strength of Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week and the event's bright future at Lincoln Center."
The red carpet favorite will join designers Monique Lhuillier, Badgley Mischka, Narciso Rodriguez, and CHADO Ralph Rucci who have all been honored with the Mercedes-Benz Presents title in the past.
