Cristofer Carrado was born gifted in the arts and possessed an extraordinary sense of vision. His mother was a young beautiful model with the dream of becoming a fashion designer and his father was a young ambitious entrepreneur.
At the age of 16, Cristofer started his 1st entertainment company and quickly excelled in the industry. Being the youngest amongst his competition, he gained much experience and was exposed to many windows of opportunity.
Soon after, almost 17 years old, Cristofer launched his 1st collection called “MAC Cartel Fashions”, in which he choreographed his own fashion show at the Palazzo in front of more than 3000 people. Due to his lack of capital and connections in the fashion industry, Cristofer had to put this dream on hold but vowed to awaken it someday in the future.
Shortly before his 21st birthday, Cristofer had expanded nationwide planning, organizing, and executing special entertainment events. His journeys lead him to Vancouver where within 3 months was running the hottest nightclub venue. With key marketing and trend setting techniques Cristofer brought the weekly attendance of Cheers nightclub from 60 people to 1100 within 2 weeks of its grand opening.
At the age of 23 Cristofer was unexpectedly diagnosed with a rare form of cancer at its late stages. Given 50% chance of recovery from this deadly disease, Cristofer became very ill and decided to move back to his home city. Despite the conclusion of his treatment resulting in a surgery that could leave him paralyzed for life, Cristofer began creating the blueprints for a international marketing, advertising, and commercial distribution company.
Only 5 months after his surgery, which left him with a 9 inch, 52 stapled scar on his abdomen, Cristofer started MAC Enterprises and began planning, organizing, and executing marketing and advertising plans for brands such as Diesel, Emporio Armani, Ed Hardy, L’Oreal, Clinique, Biotherm, and Redkin.
While reflecting on his life and the dreams he turned into reality, Cristofer came to realize that all his achievements and obstacles he faced have prepared him for his true calling in life. His purpose was the same purpose he discovered when he was just 16 years old. It was now the time to awaken that sleeping dream and fulfill his destiny.
Secluding himself from the world inside his creative studio, Cristofer worked devotedly on the designs of a collection that would inspire the world. His life was an inspiration and he was given a message he had to reveal.
A few months later, Cristofer boarded a plane headed to China where he studied in the country’s top textile factories and absorbed every detail involved in the craft called fashion. Arming himself with the fundamentals of fashion design, Cristofer began to bring his collection into reality.
Two months later after completing the final touches on this collection, Cristofer Carrado is now set to unveil the Divine Limited Edition Collection this Fall 2009.
