A true trailblazer, innovator and trendsetter, Silvia Tcherassi is one of the leading figures in fashion. She has been awarded one of France’s highest honors – the Officier de L’Ordre Arts et Lettres (Officer of the Order of Arts and Letters), a distinction bestowed on leaders of the international arts community for their “contribution and commitment to cultural service.”
She was born in Colombia, on the shores of the Caribbean. Tcherassi began her career as an interior designer, but the search for new artistic expressions led her into fashion. Her creations have been presented during the official calendar of Paris and Milano fashion weeks and she has been invited as a special guest by their organizers.
She is also the founder and creative director of the brand extension Tcherassi Hotels, which is focused on the creative development of hospitality and real estate projects.
Tcherassi is the author of the book “Elegancia sin Esfuerzo” (Effortless Elegance) published by Random House about her style approach, from fashion to hospitality.
