This September for the Fall 2016 NYFW Caravan Stylist Studio was busy with an array of wonderful guests and great events at the Gregory Hotel.
We started off with our Pre-Fashion Week event pairing up with FAKE BAKE to give all the fashionistas a fantastic sun kissed glow for the perfect NYFW look. We enlisted the help of the red carpet official spray tan experts from FAKE BAKE to handle spray tans prior to the start of fashion week. Guests were able to pick out other beauty services such as a hair – styling with OGX or nail services with COLOR CLUB. Throughout Pre-Fashion Week and NYFW Caravan Stylist Studio converted the lobby of the Gregory Hotel into a Re-Charge Lounge for models, editors, and fashion and beauty influncers to come and relax between castings, fittings and fashion shows. Guests could enjoy a bevy of healthy snacks and refreshments as well as enjoying Fashion themed movies playing on the TV screen in the bar area. Volvic – Health Ade Kombucha – Teapigs and Matcha – Belvoir Fruit Farms – Luna Bar – RXBAR – Truth Bar – Shred Popcorn – Gimme Seaweed Snacks – Goodie Girl Cookies – So Delicious Dairy Free Frozen Desserts – Misha Quark – Cocomels – Toufayan Pita Chips
Caravan always enjoys working with so many amazing up and coming brands and we were excited to get the chance to have a custom sign made out of natural burlap with the Caravan logo on it to display in the studio during NYFW from the brand Over The Moon Bridal. At Over the Moon Bridal you will find a splendid range of beautiful wedding items like veils and cufflinks as well as custom signs and personalized gifts for any occasion.
During NYFW we partnered up with an incredible eyewear company called Covry. All of their eyewear is designed in Brooklyn, New York, with the city’s vibrant energy as their source of inspiration. Experimenting with pops of color on classic styles adds subtle, unexpected twists to each piece. They believe in self-expression and honor style and comfort with timeless pieces to complement your colorful lifestyle. For one day we had the lovely Covry team set up shop in the studio to showcase their newest collections of eyewear.
For the icing on the cake and my personal favorite thing from NYFW this year was the HEISEL in 3D art installation. Fashion designer Sylvia Heisel and visual artist Scott Taylor create magic together for the HEISEL in 3D event hosted by Caravan Stylist Studio located inside the Gregory Hotel. This was defiantly one of the top Instagram moments of NYFW and if you were lucky enough to check out HEISEL in 3D you will know exactly what I mean. HEISEL is a lifestyle streetwear brand and design laboratory for wearables, HEISEL uses new technology based materials and manufacturing methods to make sustainable clothes, accessories and things.
Caravan was booking glam appointments for an array of fashionable guests for NYFW. We offered guests hair styling with fantastic OGX products, makeup with ChapStick® Manuka Secrets, POP Beauty & PIXI Beauty, and nails with Color Club. This was the perfect stop for any busy fashion goer giving them the chance to get red carpet ready for their next NYFW show.
Lets not forget about the limited edition NYFW goodie bag that guests took home. This bag was filled with all the must have items to get anyone through NYFW in style. We had the perfect sized shampoo and conditioner from OGX, 3 shades of the newest ChapStick®, Fake Bake Coconut Flawless self tanner, Manuka Secrets serum, Color Club nail polish, Volvic water, Luna Bar and a Bumkins Bag
