Happy Birthday Mom!

Carolyne Roehm

Happy Birthday to my Mom! The one and only, who I am named after. She has the best style and her infinite design knowledge is one of the reasons I am where I am today. While today she loves her Chanel, Oscar and Valentino, Mom grew up in Ireland and London (yes she is American) and loves all things swinging 60s. So in honor of Mom here are a few images from her favorites, Thea Porter, Ossie Clark/Celia Birtwell, and Biba. 

Mom in Caracas, Venezuela where she created and ran "Chameleon" a store selling imported American designer clothes, like early DVF, to Venezuelan socialites like Carolina Hererra and friends. 
An old shot of Mom's closet and her collection of antique Chinese wedding robes.
