The Fashion Chef merges Charlotte Neuville’s 30 years of experience as an internationally recognized fashion expert with her lifelong love of the pastry arts. A graduate of Williams College and Parsons School of Design, Charlotte began her career as Assistant Designer to Perry Ellis; two years later, she became Adrienne Vittadini’s Design Director. In 1985, she launched her name brand, Charlotte Neuville, Inc., to retailers, including Barney’s, Neiman Marcus, Saks Fifth Avenue, Bloomingdale’s, and Harrod’s of London. Charlotte has received critical acclaim on The Oprah Winfrey Show, Good Morning America, CNN, and in publications from Women’s Wear Daily, Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar and Elle to The New York Times, New York Magazine, Interview, and People. She was inducted into the Council of Fashion Designers of America in 1986.
In 1996, Charlotte was recruited to transform the retail chain, Lerner New York, into what ultimately became the $1 billion-plus brand, New York and Company. In 2005, she joined The Gap as Executive Vice President of Design (Men’s, Women’s, and Accessories) and was responsible for creating the record-breaking global brand PRODUCT (RED) for Bono, raising millions of dollars to combat the AIDS crisis in Africa. Earning a distinguished reputation as a brand visionary, color specialist, and trend forecaster, Charlotte has become one of a handful of executives noted for her design skills and merchandising expertise.
After 30 years in design, Charlotte turned a lifelong hobby into a professional pursuit, merging her passion for fashion with her love of the pastry arts. She graduated from The French Culinary Institute in 2011 and served a coveted internship with Master Cake Designer Ron Ben-Israel shortly thereafter. Her couture cakes and chic confections, as visually captivating as they are delicious, have garnered applause from fashionistas and foodies alike.
