Carmen March closing down her fashion house
Carmen March, the Spanish designer noted for her Latin glamour style, is to close down her fashion house at the end of next month.
The Mallorcan-born designer announced the news on Thursday, saying she would end her eponymous label on May 30th, when “the brand will shut down all activities.”
“I would like to thank all the individuals and institutions that have supported me, not only on this last project, but throughout my career in fashion. I feel blessed for having been able to work and learn so much from an amazing team of extraordinary people. These years have shaped me as a person, and have been the ultimate adventure,” the designer said in a terse release.
For the last several years, March had shown her collections by appointment in Paris, winning fans for her high-octane style. Presenting in a Paris boutique hotel suite last September, March unveiled a Latin New Wave collection that combined the edge of posh punk with Spanish flamenco dash. As for this coming fall, March referenced – the first movie star to ever appear naked in film – with Shetland wool bustiers and the designer’s signature bolero, this time in bold polkadot.
Relaunched in 2016, Carmen March’s collections celebrated
the "beauty and sophistication of a modern woman," the house noted in its communiqué.
March certainly created a distinctive oeuvre. However, with the industry in convulsions due to the global pandemic, her house will not be the only inventive brand forced to shutter in the current crisis.
“Structured bustier tops, ruffles or classic high-waisted pants had become signature pieces for the Mallorca-born designer, gaining the attention of international fashion press, retailers, celebrities and influencers. Respect for excellence, contemporary femininity, new tailoring techniques, lightness and a legacy that is intrinsically Spanish were the core elements of Carmen’s creative proposal. Carmen would like to thank all of her supporters during these amazing years,” the release concluded.
