To speak further of her career, in 2000, Carolina opened a boutique in Manhattan, and in no time her business expanded into other countries, increasing further her wealth. She has also collaborated with such celebrities as the Duchess Diana de Melo, Renee Zellweger, Michelle Obama, and Melania Trump.
