Red Carter

Red Carter was born and raised in Southern California. After teaching himself to sew as a child, he attended Otis College of Art & Design in downtown LA, where he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fashion Design. After graduation, Red went on to work for companies such as Victoria’s Secret, GUESS Jeans, Esprit and Oscar De La Renta, where he honed his craft. In 2003, Red moved to Miami to pursue his dream of starting his own swimwear label, and it was in red-hot South Beach that Red Carter Swimwear was born. For Resort 2014, he debuted his first collection, each piece featuring what would become his signature red logo button. The line continues to take inspiration from the creativity and energy of South Beach, and Red’s logo button can still be found on every style created today. In 2011 Red relocated his company to New York City, eventually expanding into a full Resortwear collection in 2016. Now, alongside his iconic swimwear, hang beautifully crafted dresses, pants, tops, skirts and a full cover-up collection.
