During fashion week, Starbucks Frappuccino gave me a huge opportunity and allowed me to showcase my collection at STYLE 360. This is a tremendous opportunity put together by the publishers of ELLE, elle.com and ellegirl.com. Elle has always been supportive of Caravan both when I created Caravan mobile + Caravan Great Jones street they published stories in my favorite section, GLOBAL NEWS. When asked to be a part of STYLE 360 I enlisted the help of two of my favorite designer friends – Stacy from Boy Meets Girl and Kara from bobi. We showed three collections … boy meets girls, bobi, and then Caravan.
The theme of the show was “EXPRESS YOUR LOVE” a tagline from Starbucks Frappuccino. My collection consisted of roses and fuschia colors and concluded with two dresses dreamt up by Danny Roberts from igor + andre. Here are some photos and articles:

BRODY – that is right Angelina – a fellow Staten Islander currently on THE JERSEY SHORE… I am proud I am from Brooklyn and then went to high school in Staten Island + Angelina is a very cool girl… she decided last minute to walk in the show and we found a dress from last season’s collection but I loved her attitude and I think she had fun and I know we were happy that she was a part of it

Caravangirl “ROSE” dress “dreamed up” by Danny Roberts of http://igorandandre.blogspot.com modeled by Kylie Bisutti + wearing ELLE
The look I was going for was this old school really feminine look with interesting shaped buns that sat on top of the head and clean glowing makeup with a pretty pink lip paired with just beautiful jewelry and the shoes I adored… for some of the dresses we used these pretty ALDO silver shoes with fabric roses – they were just sweet and easy for the girls to walk in and then we worked with VARDA ( who has incredible shoes) and paired a number of the dresses with this really beautiful feminine shoe.
Some photos before the show from backstage : That is Dania & Roxy from Red Carpet Roxy who interviews everyone for STYLE 360 – she is an awesome lady
More photos from after the fashion show:
Ramona Singer from Real Housewives of NYC did all the jewelry her – it is her jewelry line from HSN and then we also worked with ELLE jewelry. It was a mix of beautiful diamonds from Ramona’s collection and then affordable standout pieces from Elle jewelry. It was a nice mix.
And Chris Riggi from Vampire Sucks came out to support Caravan too
Very amazing was that NEON TREES performed AHHHHH!!!! I was so psyched !! I love them !!! I love their style, their sound, EVERYTHING!
I was so happy to have Starbucks Frappuccino on board because they are delicious and I just love the branding of Starbucks – so I thank them again.
