Carven is a French fashion house established in Paris in 1945 by Madame Carmen de Tommasobut. Carven became known as a couture maison, but things changed in 1991 with the introduction of the ready-to-wear line. Each season, the collections are presented during Paris Fashion Week. An important part in the rebirth of Carven was played by Guillaume Henry. He became creative director of Carven in 2009 after working at Givenchy and Paule Ka. This was the moment the brand relaunched with a new identity, that of a modern, ready-to-wear label. Henry is credited with the fast development of Carven and he is considered to be a “young Saint Laurent”. Henry's designs are considered casual, cool, but sexy and modern, insoired by young women. Carven is also known for its fragrances. The most popular is Ma Griffe. Acoording to the Carven Brand Profile, the fashion house also makes and sells jewellery. Carven also has a menswear line, which is highly appreciated.
