The designer, who attracts celebrity followers such as Vanessa Williams, Katie Couric and "Orange Is the New Black" star Dascha Polanco, is being carried at Francesca's Atelier. The designer’s star power was as big a draw as his garments, according to boutique owner Francesca Ripple. "A lot of the celebrities wear him. That's really what drew me. I saw a lot of it at the Oscars," she said. "It's a clean look. And it's fresh. There's not a lot of stuff. It's put together really well. Every woman can wear a Carmen Marc Valvo dress."
