New York City – Venezuela's Carolina Herrera paid tribute to the "very flirty, feminine" woman in her new spring and summer collection for 2013 that she unveiled during New York Fashion Week.
"The woman we're going to see next spring and summer is very flirty, very feminine, the kind that likes to have some clothes that are very soft, light and never heavy," the designer told Efe in an interview.

Herrera, one of New York fashion's most reliable compasses, is giving her style a new silhouette, "with a little higher waist, longer skirts, very fluid with a lot of movement," something she achieves with materials soft and fine like gauze, organza, silk, tulle and Georgette.
Under the title "Timeless Influence," her new collection comes focused on the basics and on proportion, with an abundance of abstract geometric prints.
The Venezuelan had her husband Reinaldo Herrera and their daughters Carolina and Patricia with her at the show, and a few famous faces, including Ivana Trump, Bianca Jagger, Vogue editor Anna Wintour, sugar baron Jose "Pepe" Fanjul and his wife Emilia.
