Montserrat New York fuses the two worlds of founder Carolina Cordón-Bouzán: New York City and Barcelona. Every design is created not only to evoke the unique spirit of each location, but also to transition effortlessly between the events that come with bustling city life and weekend escapes.
Cordón-Bouzán was surrounded by fashion from the beginning thanks in part to her jeweler grandfather who created fine jewelry for Tiffany and Harry Winston, and collaborated with Paloma Picasso. And summers in Spain introduced her to the garment trade through her grandmother Montserrat’s Costa Brava-based garment factory.
After a formative experience with CFDA/Vogue Incubator-supported brand, WHIT, where she learned the industry ins and outs firsthand, Cordón-Bouzán further developed her skills before striking out on her own.
She partnered with her trusted friend, Gayle Yelon, to make her vision for Montserrat New York a reality. Together, they forge a brand that embodies the strength, sensuality, and style of those who stomp the streets of Manhattan and soak in the rays of the Mediterranean beaches.
