Caravan’s Boy Meets Girl Fashion Show was one of the more playful shows of the season. Founder/Creative Director, Stacy Igel’s collection of contemporary tops, dresses, tracksuits, jumpers, and accessories were edgy, fun flirty and effortlessly chic.
Stacy spiced up the runway by starting the show with a live performance by Neon Trees (A new personal favorite) who performed their hit song ‘Animal’. Shortly after, the show officially started to The Contour’s ‘Do you Love Me?’. Afterward, I met up with Stacy who told me that she left the soundtrack up to Josh Madden who compiled the list and did a wonderful job of putting together a set that was upbeat and encouraged the models to practically dance down the runway!
Stacy’s inspiration for the collection was the intrepid traveler. “We have only this one life so we must live it fully, without fear or regret”. Stacy said, adding, “Our experiences create our identity and individualism, so the more experiences we have the richer we become.”
Claudine DeSola, Founder of Caravan, created some of her own collection pieces for the show. Claudine chose the theme ‘Love’ to base her ideas on after being inspired by a recent trip to Morocco. Everything looked so comfortable and yet still stylish – romantic details made their way into many of the pieces with roses, the word love and hearts embellished throughout.
Jersey Shore’s Angelina Pivarnick made a surprise appearance on the runway modeling a Caravangirl diamonds dress and walking a dog by the name of BRODY BELLON. As for the clothes, they were definitely my style – I wanted almost everything that I saw come down the runway from the jumpers to the dresses!!!
