“Color is powerful,” the 78-year-old designer told the New York Times leading up to the debut of her polychromatic collection. “Color makes you think in a different way — like when you see paintings. That’s why I say fashion and art are similar.”

Carolina became the first designer to host her New York Fashion Week show in New York’s Museum of Modern Art's Sculpture Garden. Discussing her collection with the NYT, she noted, "All my materials had to have colors. But there are no flower prints in this collection, because we’re in a garden."
