Has fashion designer Narcisco Rodriguez enjoyed the ultimate career? Let’s see. Awarded the CFDA’s prestigious “Womenswear Designer of the Year Award”? Check — and not once but twice, in consecutive years, making him the first American to achieve such an honor. Dressing the most fashionable women in the world? Check: Rodriguez, after all, was the designer who outfitted First Lady Michelle Obama for her historic election night appearance in 2008. Working with icons? Yep: years ago, he worked at Anne Klein under Donna Karan. Operated his own label? Of course: Rodriguez launched his first eponymous collection in 1997, and has since become known worldwide for his minimalist, architectural ready-to-wear clothing for women. In addition to his softly sexy fine apparel, Rodriguez designs luxurious shoes, handbags and accessories as well as a line of perfumes (For Her and Essence for women, For Him for men).
