Carla, the founder, since little has always loved shopping and styling one of her older brothers, she would even pick out his outfits for going out...(still does)
Fashion was her passion and at 18 she moved to Paris and graduated from Fashion Design.
After living abroad for 8 years, she came back to the Dominican Republic and as usual started picking out her brother's clothes...again, this is when she first thought of creating Nineteen Seventy.
A swim and resort menswear brand, with the intention to design and create purposeful comfortable pieces for warm days and sunny skies.
Carla is daily inspired and driven by love of a life near the ocean, the environment she grew up in, a paradise in the middle of the Caribbean.
