What began as a childhood hobby blossomed into a fairly secretive profession until Project Runway launched her into the public’s eye in 2009. Carol Hannah’s self-taught skill of pattern making and draping combined with learning from watching her Mother sew enabled her to start her love affair with design.
Although Carol moved to New York City in 2008, she still finds inspiration in her South Carolina roots and strives to infuse classic southern charm and grace in her designs. Carol Hannah’s design aesthetic combines whimsy with organic details – raw edges and fabric handwork that seems to grow out of the fabric itself. For Carol Hannah, design is all about how the fabric speaks to her, how her environment inspires her, and how the ever-changing pieces take shape.
All designs and production are made in New York.
