After 38 years in fashion, Venezuelan designer Carolina Herrera stepped down as head designer of her namesake fashion house and gave the reins to designer Wes Gordon. Her last show paid homage to her signature style: A white shirt with a black skirt or trousers. More than her signature style this was like a uniform to her.

The show opened with black and white looks and closed with a parade of models wearing a white shirt with a taffeta skirt with pockets in different colors. Herrera took her last bow alongside her team of atelier workers all wearing white coats and soon after Gordon brought her flowers and kissed her on the cheek symbolizing the passing of the baton sort of speak. It was a very emotional and touching moment.

Wes Gordon, 31, has been designing and learning under Herrera for a while now. He is relatively unknown in the mainstream fashion world but very promising. He went to fashion school in Central Saint Martins College of Arts and Design in London. Before Herrera, he interned at Tom Ford and Oscar de La Renta.

Herrera,79, is the epitome of elegance and class. We wish her all the best in this new chapter of her life. Check out a few more looks from the show in the pictures down below. Shop for Carolina Herrera collections on her website at www.carolinaherrera.com.
