Carla was born in Brazil - one of the most beautiful tropical countries in the world and home of a rich, lush and exotic flora. The Brazilian girl always had her heart set on one day being an ambassador and advocate for the preservation of this gift to humanity.
Fast forward to today and after having lived for over 30 years in the US and being an entrepreneur, Carla decided it was the right time to embark on her lifelong project and CARLA SHAW Sustainable Fashion was established.
Her name is Carla Wahnon, but she decided to use her husband’s last name, Shaw, as a symbolic way of saying “I do” one more time. Bill has always backed Carla’s passion and aspirations to succeed as an entrepreneur in the fashion industry and his support means the world to her.
The CARLA SHAW collection is exactly what she always envisioned; each piece is produced by hand, through a delicate process, and coated in 18-karat gold, originating jewels of singular design and impeccable finish.
Carla lives in Cambridge, Massachusetts, with her husband, Bill, and their two spoiled dogs Furby (Maltese) and Liam (Silky Terrier mix).
