French couturier Madame Carmen de Tommaso established Carven in 1945 with a clientele of film stars and royals.


The Parisian fashion house influenced the French fashion scene in the postwar period, and by being one of the first brands to launch ready-to-wear collections, Carven made high-end fashion accessible to a wider audience.

Creative Director Serge Ruffieux is building on the brand’s off-beat, gamine aesthetic with collections that include chic mini skirts and dresses, tailored pants and cozy outerwear. Carven produces womans collections, accessories and perfumes, including the classic Ma Griffe.


Freudian Kicks represents Carven as Nordic agents.
