Born in Cali, Colombia, Carolina Sarria moved to New York at the age of 19, driven by a fervent desire to immerse herself in the world of art and fashion. Her life and career celebrate chaos and beauty, with art and fashion clashing and merging, creating a narrative soaked in rebellion and intimacy.

In 2016, Carolina staked her claim in the Lower East Side, where she and her partner opened the doors to a boutique. This space was more than just a store; it was a manifesto in retail form, a riot of creativity that attracted the city’s stylists, musicians, and celebrities. Carolina's distinctive style has won over icons like Madonna, Solange Knowles, H.E.R, and Troye Sivan. Her studio/store became a cathedral of her ethos, with her designs as its hymns, establishing her as a key figure in downtown fashion and art.

Carolina’s work is a vivid expression of her beliefs, seamlessly merging art with fashion design. Influenced by her South American heritage, she challenges why traditional forms like folk and textile art have been excluded from the upper echelons of fine art.
She views each piece as a unique canvas — a singular work of art. Carolina's creations are rich, layered tapestries of freehand illustration, found materials, craft, and fashion, all imbued with potent social commentary. These pieces are marked by their decadence and individualistic expression.

By 2021, her fashion collections were being sold at Dover Street Market in New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo. This expansion was not merely growth; it was a bold statement that her art would no longer whisper but shout.

Carolina’s collaborations — with the Andy Warhol Foundation, exhibitions at Fotografiska — highlight her relentless pursuit to meld the visceral force of art with the sleek allure of fashion. Her work does not just cross boundaries; it obliterates them, rewriting the rules of engagement between creator and creation.
Carolina's innovative contributions to the art and fashion worlds have been widely recognized, earning her a nomination for Best Project of the Year from the Artists Society in 2021. Additionally, her influence was acknowledged on the cover of Vogue Italia in 2021 as one of the 100 Best Influencers, cementing her impact on contemporary culture. Carolina Sarria does not simply design; she declares war on convention, transforming each piece of clothing into a battleground where fashion and art collide spectacularly. Through her lens, every thread is spun with defiance, and every line drawn challenges the mundane, championing a future where art and fashion merge endlessly.

Carolina Sarria’s fashion collections are currently available at Dover Street Market in New York, Los Angeles, and Tokyo, Upstairs on 7th in D.C., Lingua Franca in NYC, and Maxfields in LA.
