The Fashion District Project

fashion district project
Known as a major, if not most significant fashion hub in the world, Caravan Stylist Studio has, once again, set out on the streets of New York City to develop and deliver a unique project. The garment district is bursting with fiery and sophisticated fashion brands such as Kung Katherine, Randi Rahm, Lindsay Mann, Niki English and many more.
With street style becoming such a widespread phenomena, this project focuses on returning to New York’s fashion central. Named simply as The Fashion District Project, this new endeavor encompasses various individuals who have granted access along with a real live look inside the fashion industry. Not only will this project showcase designers and brands, but it will also cover individuals that help make this industry possible, including models, publicists, sales teams and sewers. Along with these different people and King our resident photographer, the project will capture city-goers and their street style of the garment center. With weekly postings on our blog, this program will also appear on social media. Ultimately, this program will feature designers, their companies and take an exploratory angle on the influence of New York City street style!
