Liancarlo was founded in 1981 by Miami native, Carlos Ramirez, who poured his heart and soul into his creations. After starting down the path to become a lawyer as his well-intentioned Cuban immigrant mother wanted, he couldn’t shake his insatiable desire to create, so he did what he advises others to do: “Follow the thread that means something to you.” Instead of interning at a law firm, Carlos started selling a few sample dresses made in his mother’s sewing studio. It was at that time his design became more than just a job; it became his life.

Perhaps that path is what made Carlos immune to complacency and reluctant to chase fast-fading trends. His whole theory behind bridal was timelessness. He said, “I design for people, not for show. After decades of designing Liancarlo evening and bridal collections, Ramirez has stepped back from leading the Design team and now spends his days in his Santa Fe studio, unleashing his artistic talent in his paintings.


Following Carlos Ramirez’s vision of design, the Liancarlo Design Team carries on his legacy. Experimenting with different fabrics, patterns and textures, they create timeless gowns with artistic elements. From ethereal to structured, whimsical to romantic, they oversee every aspect of the gowns orchestration with their in-house seamstresses. A Liancarlo dress is stunning proof that classic doesn’t mean boring. From metallic threadwork to blossom-dotted bodices and 3D appliques, every dress is a work of art. The goal is to create something their clients will feel inherently gorgeous in without taking away from the clients’ natural beauty. As Carlos said, “I want people to remember how beautiful the bride was, not what a beautiful dress the bride wore”. The design team lives by this mantra.
