For all my collections, inspiration comes from the femininity that women exude. I respect and admire this quality. My objective is always the same: how to translate and materialize this femininity into something that any woman can wear, and express this at her best. I never pre-determine the look or the shape of my collection. I am not influenced by trends and I like to express my individuality through a woman’s natural femininity. I let my imagination take me down the path of creativity. I build my collections as I draw from this inspiration, and “feminine sensuality” defines it.
Colours are very personal. We should not feel compelled to wear a particular colour because it is thecurrent trend. We should choose colours that work best with each individual’s complexity. Our skin, hair, and eye colour, as well as our personality, should be in harmony with whatever colour(s) we choose. Black seems to work well with most people. It is timeless and appropriate for most occasions. However, we cannot wear everything in black. I use black as a base for my collections, but always in combination with other interesting and timeless colours. I am not afraid to use the
most unusual colour or texture combinations, but I always ensure that there is a harmony between them. A well-balanced colour representation that is feminine is key to me.

This vision, coupled with his experience, establishes a new standard of elegance for women within his designs that are masterfully draped, well tailored, and that emphasize femininity and luxury. Stephan Caras designs for the self assured woman of today. Her subtle sensuality and feminine simplicity are never out of mind. Stephan Caras has rightfully earned the title of "The Designer Who Loves Women"!
