Silvia Tcherassi is one of the most prominent figures in fashion. Her creations have been presented during the official calendar of Paris and Milano Fashion Weeks invited as a special guest by their organizers. Recognizing her contributions and creativity, she was decorated with the Medal of the Order of Arts and Letters by the French government, an honor bestowed on leaders of the international arts community for their “contribution and commitment to cultural service.” She is the author of the book “Elegancia sin Esfuerzo” (Effortless Elegance) published by Random House about her style approach, from fashion to hotels.
Her style has been defined as eclectic; on the one hand it evokes the sensitivity of a ballerina and on the other it exudes the force of a rock star. Her passion for new and innovative creates a constant drive to discover new sources of inspiration be it in a photograph, a landscape, iconic Latin women such as Frida Khalo or even an abstract emotion like happiness. Silvia absorbs the inspiration and characteristics of these elements to create the styles and experiences that she wishes to share with the world.
Silvia Tcherassi took one more step in her creative development having opened the first Tcherassi Hotel + Spa in Cartagena de Indias, Colombia. Both Condé Nast Traveler and Travel + Leisure have deemed her luxury Cartagena hotel as one of the best in the world.
