The Look

Designer Carmen Marc Valvo is known for unique and unusual detailing and describes his design philosophy as "eveningwear that is modern and sensitive to comfort."
Part of the reason for his success is the unique and unusual details that give each design "something special." Carmen Marc, an inveterate traveler, roams the far corners of the world at every opportunity, filling his bags with artifacts of lost or vanished arts and objects that fire his imagination. He collects pottery for its color and embossed design, ancient textiles of extinct African tribes, beaux arts jewelry, finely embroidered household linens and swatches or whole garments of lace or beading. A pottery fragment may inspire a grouping of graphically embroidered career suits or the design of a button. A beaded dress of the '20's could be the "muse" for a series of sultry beaded cocktail looks.
