Wes Gordon, the Creative Director of Carolina Herrera, talks to Suzy about dressing Kamala Harris in a white suit on the 7th of November 2020, the historic evening she became the first female Vice-President Elect of the United States of America.

The choice of designer and the fresh, bright white pant suit was a powerful symbol of the new attitude of President Elect Joe Biden.

As the Carolina Herrera company celebrates 40 years in business, Wes Gordon reveals to Suzy what it’s like dressing actors from a young Meghan Markle to Katy Perry and Gwyneth Paltrow, and how he’s dedicated himself to the Herrera legacy, supported by Puig, the Spanish fragrance and fashion group.

Here the 33-year-old designer discusses his passion for flowers, nature and lively sense of colour, which contrasts with the urban sophistication of the New York studio, in our podcast.
