creative director and designer
Behind the Designs
VAN HISE began as a personal project uniting design and fashion through a unique approach to accessories. Carrie Van Hise treats silk as a blank canvas to create bold graphic compositions. Designs inspired by the experience of living in New York and Barcelona reflect the urban lifestyle and a Mediterranean spirit. A style marked by simple shapes, pattern, and contrasting colors results in unique statement pieces.
From her Barcelona based studio limited editions and capsule collections are created outside of the traditional fashion calendar following a slow fashion philosophy. This allows more freedom to create thoughtful timeless pieces. She collaborates with local workshops in Spain and Italy to produce the collections which are finished by hand.
Carrie has a diverse creative background including a collaboration with the Spanish fashion house Pertegaz as artistic director, accessory and textile design, wallpaper collections, art direction of image campaigns as well as brand identity programs for international brands.
