CAROLINA ALVO was inspired by a very personal frustration of its founder, who -at 4'9"- is a true petite. Carolina's shopping experiences always left her feeling defeated, as if her size was an industry afterthought; clothing options were limited, unfashionable, ill-fitting, and more often than not required a trip to the tailor for much-needed adjustments. Carolina decided that if no one was making the clothes that she needed, she was going to take matters into her own hands and make them herself!
