Madame Carven, petite women's designer, turned 100 years old on August 31, 2009. Only a diminutive 1 metre 55 (five foot one) in her stockinged feet, for half a century she was the favourite designer of petite women. Frustrated by the lack of clothes suitable for small women like herself, Carmen de Tommaso dropped plans to become an architect or interior designer and took the remedy into her own hands. In 1945 she opened her own house under the name Carven.

Történt, hogy bizonyos Carmen de Tommaso aka “Madame” Carven belefáradt abba, hogy 155 cm-es magasságával sehol sem talált alkatához illő ruhát. Alig lett vége a háborúnak, 1945-ben megalapította saját divatházát. Jól tette, mert nélküle nem lenne például a Le Parfum, mely nemrég került a polcokra itthon is.
