Who is Narciso Rodriguez?

Narciso Rodriguez is a New York City fashion designer.

One of the foremost American designers during the last two decades, Narciso Rodriguez plays a singular role in global fashion. As Anna Wintour, editor in chief of American magazine Vogue has said, "No one but Narciso has ever made a simple line look more stunning."

In 1996, Rodriguez received international acclaim when he designed the bias-cut sheath wedding dress that his close friend Carolyn Bessette wore when she married John F. Kennedy, Jr.

On November 4, 2008, Narciso Rodriguez became part of a monumental event in American history. To celebrate her husband Barack Obama's triumphant victory as the first African American president of The United States, Michelle Obama chose to wear a dress from the designer’s Spring 2009 Collection. "It was both emotional and exhilarating,” Rodriguez said. “To be part of this memorable moment in history was a great honor."

Today, Narciso Rodriguez’s fashion house is based in New York City where he shows his women’s ready-to-wear collections.
