Carolina Irving has been named creative director of Oscar de la Renta Home, effective immediately. She succeeds interior designer Miles Redd, who has served in the role since 2003. Redd has resigned to focus on his own interior design business.
Irving will oversee the creative direction and execution of the Oscar de la Renta's home collection including the gift and entertaining collection that is produced in-house, the furniture line manufactured by Century Furniture, home fabrics and wallpaper with Lee Jofa, and rugs produced by Elson & Company.
“I am incredibly excited to work with Oscar," said Irving. "His style is iconic—if any fashion designer has legitimacy to do home—it’s Oscar. He has the most fantastic sense of color and scale.”
“While Miles Redd has done an excellent job here and we will miss him tremendously, I can think of no better person than Carolina to continue to develop our Home collection. Her taste is fabulous,” said Oscar de la Renta.
Irving started her career at House & Garden where she worked for 10 years as Editor at Large. In 2007, she left to work with Hamish Bowles on Vogue Living, and started her own fabric business, Carolina Irving Textiles, which she continues to design and operate. Irving is a contributor to T Magazine, where she writes a monthly column entitled In the Air. Born in Miami, Irving is from a Venezuelan family and was raised in Paris. She studied history of art at The Louvre.
