Carlos Souza

VP of Public Relations, Valentino

The Brazilian-born Carlos Souza is the vice president of public relations and worldwide brand ambassador for Italian fashion label Valentino. A former model, he has worked in fashion for nearly 25 years. Souza is also a fixture in the art and design worlds, serving as editor-at-large for Architectural Digest and contributing editor for Interview. This spring, he chronicled his glamorous going-ons in #Carlos's Places, a coffee table tome that documents "a non-stop agenda of sun-kissed lotus-eating, louche nightclubbing, couture fittings and impressively deep perma-tanning." This week, Souza turns his well-traveled eye to 1stdibs, curating a selection of items that ranges from a 19th-century marble bathtub to a technicolor 1970s surfboard.
